The education as a Ceramic Designer

The focus is on your professional future and, therefore, the training is very practical. Our objective is to enhance your individual design ideas beyond the mere craft and to qualify you as a professional ceramic designer. It is our essential task to support you individually. The development of your personal creative fingerprint takes centre stage.

We impart knowledge in the fields of professional design techniques as well as the basic principles of aesthetic perception. Art history, design theory and drawing complement the topic-related practical modules in the areas of vessel and surface design as well as sculpture and design. Craft techniques in the fields of architectural ceramics, throwing of vessels, realisation of decors as well as model and mould design and construction in gypsum offer you the foundations for the realisation of your design drafts. Additionally, you will acquire knowledge in graphical computer design and the presentation of your ceramic products, and you will learn how to manage your own company.

To make all this possible we offer you excellently equipped workshops and lab workstations, which allow for diverse experimentation and extensive project work in various ceramic materials and technologies. In your final year, you will have your own workshop station for the final work.
