Master of Glass Art and Science

Starting in October 2017

We are looking for students who would like to make short residences in the Research Unit VICARTE
( or to enrol in the international Master "Glass and Ceramics for the Arts" in the end of September.

The program is aimed at glass students throughout the world who have the interest and ability to approach this material from a broader perspective than is usually seen. The program will pioneer the curricular and intellectual integration of the artistic approach with sound scientific practices.

Additionally a thorough art and glass historical perspective will be offered in this unique environment. You will learn with people working with glass from several disciplines and perspectives. This will bring with it knowledge of their motivations, concerns, ways of thinking, and ideals. You will be at the forefront of new developments in materials and techniques and applications in glass: industrial, architectural, artistic and scientific.
