Ceramic Designers’ Contemporary Visions: The Contributions of Art Schools

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In Angela Dumas’ terms (2000), design must be understood as a word that describes both a process and an outcome. Most people are creative, and consequently are able to contribute to product design. However, differences in thinking styles can significantly affect the areas where art school designers can contribute most comfortably. This paper will concentrate on modern ceramic design, considering artists’ thoughts about the ceramics industry and their functional and aesthetic consequences. The researcher will review different design approaches around the world, as well as various ceramics design methodologies used in art schools, and will support each case with a practical example from the field.
