BA Ceramic Design
Design by Practice focuses on the making experience and the intrinsic qualities of objects and materials. You will develop a sensitivity to the processes, techniques and craft of ceramic design.
The projects are learnt within a professional context:
Design by Project explores the notion of designing within distinct parameters; the process is often linear with specific points of delivery and outcomes. Design by Concept is a more flexible approach, highly reflective and research based and focuses on building a framework for design thinking.
At the end of Stage 2 you will draw on these methodologies in your self initiated projects.
As at the end of Stage 2, you will continue to draw on the methodologies learnt in Stages 1 and 2 in your self initiated projects. Your final projects will confirm your chosen route to career development and your personal contribution to the future of ceramic design.
