About the Artist

Raised in City Terrace of East Los Angeles, Claudia Solórzano began to pursue the ceramic arts at East Los Angeles College. There, she felt a strong connection to the material itself and the community it attracted. To further her education, she transferred to California State University, Long Beach where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in ceramics. Forming connections with working artists, she began to work as a studio assistant while also holding a position as a studio tech. Claudia eventually decided to return to school and earn her Master of Fine Arts at Claremont Graduate University. Currently, she works part-time as a ceramics instructor, teaching hand-building ceramic courses and studio assists in downtown Los Angeles.
