American Museum of Ceramic Art

The Cinematic Roots of Clay

Alyson Brandes is a graduate of Chapman University and a 2020 Getty Marrow Undergraduate Intern at AMOCA. During her internship, Brandes writes periodically for AMOCA.org, and posts on Instagram and Facebook on Tuesdays.

In her third blog, The Cinematic Roots of Clay, Brandes explores the roots of claymation and compares them to works by contemporary artists.
