Patricia Kirkland is drawn to Greek sculpture, Renaissance paintings and ancient healing practices. These influences shape and inform her collection. Tricia’s process is internal and intuitive. Rather than starting with a destination in mind, each piece unfolds between artist and medium, coming to life the way a sculpture emerges from stone. Her signature shapes are stylistic interpretations of natural and primitive forms. When her mother passed recently, she found a way to keep her close to her heart by enclosing the ashes in a gold crescent moon that she wears around her neck. That collection has now grown as she wanted to give others this same experience of having a unique and beautiful piece of jewelry to keep their loved one close. Tricia comes from the Lake District of north England and now studies the art of lost-wax casting with master craftsman Fred de Vos. in New York City.
