Patti is a local glass artist with a studio here in Napa. Although she holds an MFA in ceramics from the University of Oregon in Eugene, she is currently intrigued with the color possibilities of fused and cast glass. Her work has taken several avenues from glass "curtains" to cast glass work evolving into multiple disc hangings to be enjoyed outdoors in the garden as "tree bling".
Her sculptural glass works reflect her captivation with natural structures. She interprets their forms in clay and then casts those forms in glass creating installation pieces for public spaces, gardens, and structures that serve as architectural elements. Patti has completed commissions for several West Coast wineries and numerous other public and private collections.
