Copper/Glass/Shell Artist Joan Patterson
Scotland native Joan Patterson nourished her creative growth as a child with countless visits to the museums of Glasgow. In the early 1990s, following a vacation to Miami, she relocated to Jupiter, Florida where she still resides.
After self-taught study and work in stained glass, she progressed into three-dimensional forms that have evolved into the jewelry and home accents that are now her signature pieces. Her work primarily incorporates copper and glass, with inspirations from nature, Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles. Additionally, some of her pieces incorporate limpet shells which her sister collects from Scottish beaches and sends to her.
Patterson’s jewelry includes bracelets, earrings, chokers and pendants. Her home accents include night lights, fan and lamp switch pulls, window decorations and tabletop clocks.
She shows her work in numerous art shows throughout Florida, and has offered her art work through Domain Home Accessories & Gallery for many years.
