Studio Theories and Practices


This group brings together researchers rooted in studio-based, creative and professional practices with the aim to explore and advance different interdisciplinary approaches to material form and conceptual processes in fine art, applied arts and design. The research group has a dual focus: One key area has a depth of knowledge and expertise in printmaking, sculpture and painting as expanded practices. The other key area focuses on investigating and developing conceptual processes integral to architectural ceramics, art glass, tableware design in silver and ceramics and textile design.
