Ceramics and moulds

The ceramics workshop has facilities for both minor and major ceramics projects, such as a digitally controlled kiln that can fire three-metre-high sculptures. In the mould workshop, students learn to make moulds and to cast with different materials.


Our ceramics kilns can fire sculptures that are up to three metres tall and weigh up to two tonnes. The kiln room is no less than 8.5 metres high. This provides a unique opportunity to work on large-scale sculptures and projects for public spaces and to develop ceramics in relation to architecture. We are the only education institution in the world that offers computer-controlled ceramics kilns of such dimensions.
