Breana Ferreira (Fur-Air-Ra) is an emerging studio artist currently working with clay at the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, CA as a long-term artist in residence. Ferreira was born and raised here in Southern California and received her BFA in Ceramics at the University of North Texas as a first-generation graduate. She has been actively engaged in the competitive Ceramics community achieving awards through the NCECA Skutt Student Competitions and recognition from organizations and exhibitions such as the Strictly Functional Pottery National Exhibition, the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, and the Artstream Nomadic Gallery. Her practice revolves around a desire to understand the self as a creature of comfort and a product of its environment. In drawing directly from aspects of her environments that evoke curiosity, she crafts objects as mementos that reflect on the significance of everyday life. Ferreira is in residence at AMOCA September 2022–August 2023.

AMOCA’s Artist in Residence Program, established in 2012, is one of the few long-term fellowship opportunities for ceramic artists on the West Coast. This residency provides artists an opportunity to produce or develop a new body of work. The program is funded through generous support from Julianne and David Armstrong, Laguna Clay, and the Windgate Foundation.
