Local ceramic artist, Rebecca Catterall, took home the top honor from the American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA) Biennial Show.The show was sponsored by the American Ceramic Society—Design Chapter.

Juror Patrick Crabb, a nationally known and collected ceramic artist, college professor and Fulbright recipient, commented on his attraction to the aesthetics and the social message behind the piece.

More than fifty ceramic artists were represented in the show at the Pomona CA museum which ran through Sept. 29.

Catterall’s ceramic hubcap, “Traffic,” is part of her Car Culture series portraying her love/hate relationship with cars.

“Living in Los Angeles one gains a strange affinity with the car,” said Catterall. “As much as we would like to, it is impossible to live without a car here.”

Catterall is a past president and current member of Topanga Canyon Gallery where her work is on display.
