The Tshwane University of Technology’s Department of Fine and Studio Arts is one of the few university-based visual arts departments in South Africa that offers comprehensive training in ceramics.
From second-year through to the Postgraduate Diploma, the ceramics module is structured to challenge the traditional perception of ceramics as an inherent craft medium. Lecturers and students push the boundaries of classical ceramics practice by infusing contemporary styles and subjective conceptual narratives into the vessels and sculptural forms they create. The program also prepares and exposes students to the various career possibilities and opportunities in the creative industries, and critically engages them on issues of sustainability, social engagement, and their positionality.
This exhibition is a showcase of the student's studio practice during 2022. Artworks were selected from students who achieved a high level of excellence during the academic year. Besides celebrating the students’ achievements, the ultimate aim of this exhibition is to expose students to a professional exhibition environment where their artworks can be viewed and appreciated widely.
