Guldagergaard is a non-profit institution with state funding from the Danish Ministry of Culture and the municipality of Slagelse.


Guldagergaard works to promote and develop ceramic art, craft, and design. The ambition is to help shape the future of ceramics by creating a dialogue within the ceramic community. We offer all artists, educators, and students an international environment, which aims at forming a unique match between academic research, professional practice, and artistic research.

Guldagergaard – International Ceramic Research Center means Golden Acre farm and has been the name of this place for more than a century. It used to be a fruit farm owned by the same family for nearly 100 years. In 1997 the International Ceramic Research Center Guldagergaard was established and our goal is still to offer international artist-in-residence, well-equipped studios and technical staff ready to help to put their visions into the clay.

Guldagergaard collaborates closely with many other experts in the ceramic field. You are, of course, welcome to contact us if you need additional information or for assistance on a specific project.


Our vision
The vision is to be a ceramic research center with a special focus on our artists-in-residence, and on helping to foster an international network among artists.

Our mission
Guldagergaard is an international artist-in-residence center for professional artists and our purpose is to promote ceramic as an art form.
