Honours subject area

Sculpture will allow you to explore a broad range of approaches to contemporary sculptural practice, including ceramics and glass. The flexible structure of the program also allows you to explore temporal and spatial approaches to sculptural practice, involving installation, performance, film, video and audio works. Sculpture incorporates concepts and processes central to its history such as casting, carving, throwing, mould making, welding, glass blowing, hot sculpting, glass fusing, slumping, coldworking, flameworking, slip casting, surface technologies, firing, and the assembling of objects and the building of structures that articulate space. New technologies such as the visualisation techniques of 3D computer modeling, CAD/CAM and digital imaging are also addressed. Sculpture will provide you with a historical understanding of the materials that you use, whilst you develop the necessary skills for working across a wide range of applications and developing a contemporary practice.
