Projects will revolve around the topics of space, structure and form and the development of ideas in relation to material. Techniques and processes will include hand-building, surface treatment and glazing. Clay is a subtle material allowing an exchange between the medium and the self. Its rich history provides a backdrop to frame contemporary investigations into ritual, objecthood and artistic expression. Students are encouraged to experiment with a range of strategies, including installation work, large construction, and experimental techniques.
