BA (Hons) CERAMIC DESIGN 2013
We are excited to announce the Ceramic Design degree show
Wednesday 19th to Sunday 23rd June 2013.
Three years in the making, this show will provide an insight into tomorrow’s leading artists, makers and designers while challenging the perceptions of ceramics in the design and art world.
This cohort of students marks a new direction for the Ceramic Design course at Central Saint Martins, demonstrating a fresh approach to the subject. As one of the only stand alone ceramic design courses in the country, the show is a unique reflection of the students’ diverse practices which range from contemporary design to objet d’art to sculpture. The exhibition promises to be an eclectic mix of work showcasing cutting edge art and design with a high skill level for which Central Saint Martins has become internationally renowned. It will stand confidently alongside its art and design contemporaries.
The emphasis on building technical skill and innovative thinking has produced highly skilled artefacts that so far include beautiful tableware, life size tigers, provocative figurines and large scale installation pieces. To add to this students have embarked on a wide range of collaborative projects working with such names as Chanel, Vista Alegre, Clayground Collective and artists Barnaby Barford and Laura Ellen Bacon.
‘This group of Ceramic Design students have always been a creatively hungry and ambitious group of individuals who have engaged with every opportunity available to them with energy and intelligence.
There will be ceramic work shown of quality, which will be expressed as extraordinary, but also quietly absorbing providing the audience with everything they may love about ceramics and for those who may not have any previous interest, something to provoke their thinking and maybe assumptions. It will be worth seeing.’
-Kathryn Hearn Course Director, BA(Honours) Ceramic Design
This is an extremely ambitious year for the ceramic design course and the passion of its students shows through every aspect of the exhibition.
