During Patti Warashina’s long and celebrated career, now spanning almost 45 years, her ceramic figures and objects have blended realism with wit and satire. The body is almost always at the center of these narratives of the absurd, serving as a marker of the physical and psychological, of events both political and personal.
Patti’s most recent work captures familiar, everyday moments, yet this familiarity is tempered by her usual play with narrative ambiguity and, perhaps unexpectedly, accompanied by a radically simplified figural form. Though her medium is ceramics Patti brings an incredible artistic voice to the medium of glass.
