Here are our featured artists this month:

 

Sandra TorresSandra Torres 

Originally trained as an architect, Sandra Torres has entirely transferred her creative energy into clay work. Her ceramic education started under the wing of a master ceramist at an experimental studio in Mexico City. From there, she continued her education at a variety of studios in Southern California, and during her travels to China and Mexico, where she studied traditional clay work and techniques of each culture. She undertook an apprenticeship at Studio Pieter Stockmans in Genk, Belgium, which had a significant impact on her current work, and later led her to be an Artist in Residence at the International Ceramics Studio in Kecskemet, Hungary. She currently works at her home studio in Ojai, California.

Brittany MojoBrittany Mojo

Brittany Mojo was born in 1989 in Northeast New Jersey. She received her BFA in Ceramics from California State University Long Beach, and her MFA from UCLA in 2016. She currently teaches ceramics and sculpture at Orange Coast College and La Sierra University and is a member of the artist-run collective, Tiger Strikes Asteroid Los Angeles.

Although predominantly a ceramic sculptor, Brittany makes functional vessels, and sees that practice as a free investigation into material and color. her functional works inhabit a wonky, joyous place and are seldom limited to a particular aesthetic. Brittany uses functional wares as tools to investigate larger questions within her sculpture practice, while also offering a more accessible object to the public. Her interest in cups, vases, bowls, and plates as mementos of creative explorations provide a space for personal artistic liberty.
