SHORT BIO:

Pat Haase creates realistic figurative sculptures, which  capture familiar emotional gestures. Most of Pat Haase’s work is ceramic, though she has worked in Wood, Wax, Glass, Bronze, Paper, and Plaster. 

Her awareness of posture and anatomy comes from teaching Yoga for 20 years, and from her medical background.   

Pat's sculptures  convey personality, attitude, and mood  expressively.  While Pat’s figures stand(sit or lie) alone, the posture, gesture, and facial expression suggest a narrative about what just happened, or what may soon happen. 
 
Pat Haase also teaches sculpture, and has been studio Assistant for Tip Toland as she prepared for her one woman show at Bellevue Arts Museum, WA. in Fall of 2008; and for her gallery show at Barry Friedman’s in Chelsea, Manhattan, NY, in spring of 2012
