Alicja Patanowska

Learning from mistakes: from waste to modes of mass production

Alicja Patanowska is a presenter at the 2019 Australian Ceramics Triennale Tasmania. Her artistic practice combines glass with porcelain and visual arts with designing, always aiming to engage the audience. What is characteristic of her art is the recurrent topic of waste. Since she creates by working a material, craft skills are key to her artistic and design practice.

Alicja is currently undertaking a PhD at Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw. She graduated from the Royal College of Art in London ( 2014) and the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw (2012) as is the laureate of a number of awards, such as Franz Award (2019), Mazda Design Award (2018), Gazeta Wyborcza’s WARTO (2017), must have!, (2016), British Glass Biennial (2015). Her works form a part of several art and design collections, one of which belongs to the Shanghai Museum of Glass.
