Analysis of ceramics Mass Production at MTSIFA Makerere University and surrounding areas TUSIIMIRE IVAN; Makerere University Research has shown thatthe ceramic making methods used at MTSIFA largely by students do not rhyme with the mission of the course industrial arts which encourages production of artworks in mas, mass-production. This research points out loopholes in the methods used in ceramic production at MTSIFA and discusses the possible solution In visions of an economically-collapsed anarchic future, personal items and tools are hand-made because there is no other way for them to come into being, just as was the case in medieval times and in more recent pre-industrialized societies. Human labor was cheap, but objects were expensive, so only the rich had more than the most basic few possessions. Now days, objects have become cheap because of industrial mass production. This calls up the MTSIFA student to produce more in order to cope with competition in market Data was collected by a valid reliable questionnaires, oral interviews and document analysis. The collected data were later then analysed. A total of ten students were question orally, 15 students filled questionnaires and observation as a tool of data collection was used to collect the practical activities and process of actual ceramic making. In conclusion, the findings helped to understand and analyse ceramic production at MTSIFA in this helped in brainstorming the possible solution to the current ceramic production by encouraging mass production of ceramics to meet the demand in the market.
