Claudia V. Solórzano

Claudia V. Solórzano is a Los Angeles-based artist working in ceramic sculpture. In her practice she utilizes ceramic materials to examine socio-economic stratification and domesticity through encounters with architectural motifs from the Los Angeles urban landscape. Her sculptures operate as portraits that navigate race, class, preservation, and the ephemerality of communities confronted with gentrification and sociopolitical boundaries.

She obtained her Bachelors in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Ceramics from California State University, Long Beach and her Masters in Fine Arts from Claremont Graduate University. Currently, Solórzano holds the position of Lead Studio Technician at Still Life Studio a local pottery studio in the Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles where she also teaches advanced hand-building classes. Solórzano is in residence at AMOCA May-December 2023.

AMOCA’s Residency Program

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. Since 2022, thanks to enhanced support from the Windgate Foundation, additional short-term residencies are available for artists based in Southern California.
