Diploma of Ceramics

National Course Code: CUA51215


This qualification reflects the role of ceramicists who combine specialised technical, creative and conceptual skills to develop their own ceramics practice. They are able to plan, design and realise a body of ceramic work using in-depth skills specifiic to ceramics technologies, materials and processes.

Practice at this level is underpinned by application of arts theory and history and the ability to critically analyse and synthesise information from a range of sources. Discourse around complex ideas is also required.

Ceramicists may work in their own practice, or in organisations that design and produce ceramic objects, such as hand-crafted kitchen ware and decorative furnishings, specialist tile manufacturers or makers of landscape and gardening items. The purpose of the work may be artistic or functional. Ceramic artists often teach in a range of community contexts.
