Patricia Esch was born in Madison, Wisconsin in 1940. She attended Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and received her BA in Design in 1963. From 1963-1965 she studied under Harvey Littleton at the University of Wisconsin. Afterwards, she moved to Colorado and set up a studio in Denver. She was a studio glassblower until 1974, when, she said, "I sold my equipment and returned to Madison, Wisconsin, where I have been a pastry chef . . . I am making furniture as a hobby" (Women Working in Glass, ed. Lucinda Kohler, 2003, pg 42-43). Esch's art has been exhibited in the United States and internationally.
