The Master's programme in Ceramics and Glass at Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design is aimed at the student who with a great deal of independence and creativity in an artistic crafts context wants to push boundaries within the area, and his/her own practical knowledge with a base in ceramics and glass, its theory and practice.


The Ceramics and Glass programme at Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design starts from the students' projects and activities and has its base in the production of crafts from a practical and professional stance. With a base in material tradition and our well-equipped workshops, we work across many different areas. We focus on developing knowledge and making it visible by connecting it to ceramics and glass and further, within the cultural field of crafts and production.

The programme aims to examine and question the role of crafts in society by applying design and the immaterial functions of crafts. We want to lead the development of knowledge in our sphere of competence and thereby create a vital interactivity with other fields and target groups.

The program is research preparatory.


The selection is made on artistic grounds and is based on assessment of artistic portfolio, project proposal and interview. 

The selection process takes place in two stages. The first stage involves the applicant assignment and statement of intent submitted by the applicant being assessed on the basis of their ability to express themselves artistically and to adopt an investigative and reflective attitude, as well as degree of independence in expression. We also evaluate technical proficiency and craftsmanship.

In the second stage, a number of applicants are invited to an interview where the applicant’s motivation for undertaking the programme, ability to reflect on their own artistic attitudes are discussed in relation to the previously submitted applicant assignment. Based on these criteria described, an overall assessment is finally made.
