IN HIS OWN WORDS

Editor’s Note: We began our specialty marketing Architecturally Unique Homes in 1990 which makes this our thirty-year anniversary dedicated to celebrating architecture and design in real estate. We are proud that to this day, we are the only real estate brokerage in Arizona that makes architecture a special focus of their trade. Shortly after we planted our flag, Debbie and I began to publish a series of magazines devoted to architecture and design: Defining Desert Living. Scott Jarson, Editor

Our goal then and now is to elevate the local discussion of architecture and design, spotlighting the amazing history and talent we have in our community. There is a rich desert history here of unique architecture, exemplary art, design and craft. This magazine is our way of celebrating this narrative with

Defining Desert Living

SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER ISSUE 2020


In the midst of our Valley there are cool, irrigated citrus groves in the shadow of Camelback Mountain, along with pockets of Spanish revival, adobe, and mid-century modern ranch homes. There are forests of giant saguaros in the foothills to the north, an area that is known for cutting-edge architecture, and rows of majestic date palms lining streets of historic homes in central Phoenix. All of this makes for a rich, urban landscape that includes modern in-fill architecture, loft projects and stunning high-rise towers. All coexisting within the dramatic backdrop of our unique Sonoran Desert. azarchitecture understands the contrasts and architectural nuances that set unique homes apart. From Frank Lloyd Wright to Case Study, Eames to Al Beadle, azarchitecture speaks the language of modern architecture.

FEATURED DESIGNER BY ALE XIS M AGNESS

PATRICIA SANNIT If you ask Patricia Sannit how long she’s been an artist, she’ll tell

you, “Since I was five years old.” She’s not fibbing. “Various relatives have my first pieces” she says, grinning. She grew up with geometric patterns, vintage tapestries, and hand crafted items that honored tradition and found herself using those patterns in her work. After receiving her Certificate in Ceramics in Norway, she majored in Scandinavian Studies and Art History, Patricia returned to clay. “I like dirt” she says, matter-of-factly. It’s not surprising that, when she was in her early twenties, Patricia landed back in the dirt—this time as an archaeologist. On one particular dig, she recalls uncovering an infant burial and the impact it made on her. The smile leaves her face as she recalls the memory of pondering that 10,000 years ago, a woman wept, laid her child to rest, and probably went on with life, not unlike what many mothers face today. Not unlike uncovering the small grave, the destruction of Allepo made an impression on her and changed the course of her work. Over the past several years, Patricia has been breaking the mold by no longer looking strictly into the past, but exploring a brave new world: the future. The circle of life is a recurring theme in her work due to experiences that have shaped her life and work. Her recent exhibition Rise Fall Rise at Phoenix Art Museum was one of her largest shows to date. In her spare time, Patricia teaches Ceramics at Phoenix College. “Dig deep. Learn by making. Pound it out.” These are phrases she uses when someone has “potter’s block.” She also likes to offer students mounds of clay out instead of cutting flat pieces off and distributing them or leaving the clay in the bag for students to fend for themselves. “With a mound, you see something there, and you get over your fear.” Congratulations to the fearless 2016 Arlene and Morton Scult Contemporary Forum Artist Award Recipient, Patricia Sannit, a artist of, at once, a bygone time and a time to come.
