The Craft - Glass and Ceramics programme on Bornholm is characterised by its intensive approach to materials in the way, in which students design artefacts. The programme is rooted in the Danish design tradition, in which focus on craft and a material-based way of thinking and experimentation have always represented a large part of the artistic basis for the design of artefacts in glass and ceramics.
The curriculum of the Craft - Glass and Ceramics programme places great emphasis on the development and expression of the individual student. The programme is characterised by aesthetic, cultural, social and personal discussion of the student’s material expression.
The programme combines craftsmanship and thorough knowledge of techniques and materials with artistic decision-making and critical reflection about the student’s own process and product.
Our students work on a broad spectrum of crafts - glass and ceramics: from small batch production and working together with companies to conceptually unique works based on the student’s own artistic development and interpretation of the subject.
