Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler I talk with Patti Warashina. Her illustrious career in clay spans over five decades and includes more than three decades teaching at the University of Washington in Seattle. Her large-scale sculptures often show the human figure moving through imagined landscapes. In our interview we talk about her 1986 tour de force “A Procession” which depicts 76 figures representing Seattle’s burgeoning arts scene traveling over a bridge. We also discuss the benefits of aging as an artist, teaching at the University of Washington, and her subversive attitude towards gender roles.
