California women artists have made groundbreaking contributions to ceramic arts for over 100 years. "Breaking Ground: Women in California Clay," an exhibition at the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, highlights and celebrates 44 artists who have defined and redefined California ceramics across three generations — from early trailblazers like Beatrice Wood and Vivika Heino to distinct artists like Judy Chicago and Viola Frey to contemporary ceramicists like Keiko Fukazawa and Kim Tucker. In this video, AMOCA executive director Beth Ann Gerstein walks us through the gallery rooms and Fukazawa discusses her "Peacemaker" series on display in "Breaking Ground."
