16 June - 22 June 2012
University of Sunderland BA (Hons) Students
University of Sunderland students present Glass and Ceramics 2012, an exhibition of 21 artists from Saturday the 16th to Friday the 22nd of June 2012 at the National Glass Centre.
The students have been creating their final pieces since the beginning of this academic year, thoroughly testing materials and concepts.
Each project reflects the individual student’s interests and approach; developed over the previous two years of the Glass and Ceramics degree course.
Some students use traditional craft techniques, while others favour cutting-edge manufacturing processes. Glass and Ceramics 2012 will showcase the region’s best glass and ceramics practitioners of the future.
The exhibition will give students a real-world task; working to deadlines, presenting their work professionally, and forging media contacts to promote themselves. Glass and Ceramics 2012 is more than just an academic exercise, it is a launch pad for tomorrow’s designers and makers – and an opportunity to showcase themselves that is becoming increasingly rare in today’s market.
Visitors to the exhibition will have the pleasure of supporting the work of up-and-coming artists, and be giving the opportunity to buy any pieces that catch their eye.
