Course contentCeramics research reflects the breadth and diversity of the subject field and includes aspects of ceramics history, theory and critical discourse as well as studio based ceramics practice. Group members deal with both the production and consumption of ceramic objects and aim to explore links and maintain dialogue between their various interests. Staff in the group are centrally involved in the Interpreting Ceramics Research Collaboration (ICRC) set up in September 2000 by individuals from 4 universities: BSU, UWE, UWA and UWIC. A major outcome of the collaboration is the peer reviewed international ceramics journal Interpreting Ceramics.
