Combining the useful with the beautiful matters a lot to anyone
deciding to become a potter or ceramics designer. He/she intends
to manufacture with his hands something he has brought to existence
with his/her imagination and creative impulse.
Tradition and future
Everywhere in the world and for thousands of years man has made
utensils/consumer items/everyday objects and works of art from clay
and mud. The town of Landshut in Lower Bavaria has always been a
centre of this old craft. Due to prolific deposits potters and ceramists
have always settled and worked in its region.
With its three kinds of school the Keramikschule Landshut (government
approved school of ceramics) has kept this tradition alive.
At the Berufsfachschule
(vocational and training college) students are trained to become
a ceramist in all-day courses.
(vocational school for apprentices) is attended by apprentices from
all over Bavaria at certain periods of time.
At the Meisterschule
(training college) journeymen/trained craftsmen are trained to
become master-ceramists and a ceramics designers (both government-approved)
in all-day courses.
