Ceramics at Cardiff Metropolitan University - UCAS

Course summary

Clay has a visual and material language crossing all cultures. It is intrinsic to people’s lives, needs and memories. A ceramist is skilled in working with this most versatile of materials. They feel the world through their hands and engage with the transformative power of materials. The BA (Hons) Ceramics degree at Cardiff Met gives you the skills to contribute to this expanding field. You will explore an anthropological approach to making, socio-geographic mapping of materials and practices, and the social capacity of skills by working with local initiatives, such as galleries, market places, collections, and as part of our ‘global studio’. You will examine creative strategies to identify your own tendencies and patterns in idea development, studying glaze and material technology to turn those ideas into form. You will be equipped with the skills to respond to both conceptual and commercial contexts, to appreciate the breadth of the field from function to figurative, from installation to innovations in new technologies. With opportunities to work real-world contexts on live briefs, creative competitions and interdisciplinary projects, you will be encouraged to identify and build your own independent practice and work towards your future career.
