Warashina, best known for her squadrons of highly-animated, colorful female ceramic sculptures, will appear in conversation with Faigin (Gage Academy co-founder) for a discussion of the extent of her identification with the female figures she creates, the stories she weaves around them, and how they relate to the “real” world.

Patti Warashina

[tab title=”Details”]

In the past, ceramic art was associated with teacups and teapots, bowls and vases.  For Patti Warashina, on the other hand, clay is a perfect tool for figurative sculpture. Warashina is best known for her squadrons of highly-animated women, figures enlivened by boldly colored clothing and evocative gestures. She’ll appear in conversation with Gary Faigin, artist, Seattle Times critic, and Gage Academy co-founder, for a discussion of the extent of her identification with the female figures she creates, the stories she weaves around them, and how they relate to the “real” world. Find out more about her process, how the sculptures take form in her studio, and how her characters have changed over time.
