Title: Dog Teapot

Artist: Patti Warashina

Warashina sources a teapot in a surprising and mischievous form, translating the cartoon stance of the dog into a decorative vessel that predicates function from an unorthodox and remarkably captured animal movement. Through her 50-year career Warshima has frequently studded her work with subtle political and social critique, the influence of California Funk and surrealism shifting her craft to become a vehicle for mischievous figurative plots, and the begging gesture of ’Dog Teapot’ might conceal a greater skepticism.
