The American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA) has acquired a piece by Philadelphia ceramic artist Jerry Bennett for its permanent collection. AMOCA is the largest ceramic museum in the US dedicated to clay art. Its mission is to increase the understanding of audiences in unraveling the creative thinking behind making ceramic objects as an art form.
The American Museum of Ceramic Art, located in Pomona, California, was founded in 2003 by founder David Armstrong. He fell in love with ceramics in the 1960s while a student at Pomona College and studied with the legendary Paul Soldner. This experience inspired Armstrong to collect the work of other ceramic artists.
