The American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, Calif., is honoring prolific Seattle ceramicist Patti Warashina with a solo show, “Patti Warashina: Wit and Wisdom,” July 14-Sept. 29. “Wit and Wisdom” comprises 115 pieces, creating a retrospective of the past 50 years of the artist’s career. Born in Spokane, Warashina discovered ceramics while at the University of Washington and developed a lifelong love for clay. The California show joins her many other honors: fellow in the American Craft Council, the Artist Trust Twining Humber Lifetime Achievement Award, the University of Washington Distinguished Alumnus Award, the Governor’s Award of Special Commendation for the Arts and two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. Warashina pieces reside in the collections of the Smithsonian, the Museum of Art and Design New York, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. (A Seattle Times review of one of her best-known exhibitions in recent years is here.
