Two images from ceramics featured on the Guardian website on 18th June, one from Louise De Cecco and one from ester Svensson. Not bad for a small department that is being shut down! You can see it here.
No new undergraduates will be accepted for both the full and part-time Ceramic degree courses at the Glasgow School of Art. This is the end of undergraduate ceramic education in Scotland. Following a recommendation by the Head of the School of Design, this decision, taken in haste without any staff or student consultation will have major implications for Scottish design, culture and tourism. As ceramic students of GSA, we feel passionately that there is a promising future for ceramics in Scotland and are disappointed that GSA lacks the vision and courage to support a profitable and innovative element of the design school.
