The gentle simplicity and elegant form and motion of a Patera Kori Studios sculpture touches the quiet, balanced center of our souls. The graceful movements of the ballerina, the still stable form of the sitting, meditating monk, the perfect geometrically expanding spirals of the nautilus shell all influence the artistic vision of the kinetic wood sculptures produced by Patera Kori Studios.
Patera Kori Studios produces the collaborative, artistic efforts of the father and daughter team of Eduardo and Darlene.
In fact it was Darlene, 25 years ago that encouraged her father, Eduardo, to pursue his interest in art. At first, this advice seemed rather distant from his first career involving nuclear physics and engineering. But the combined left and right side brain activities have produced outstanding art and led Eduardo to start an art school and act as Director from 1992 to 2002. As an artist Eduardo works in many mediums including watercolors, acrylics, clay sculpture and most recently his unique, kinetic wood sculptures.
Darlene’s art career has also taken an unusual and interesting path. From George Washington University graduate, to creative marketing manager, to mother of two boys, to fiercely competitive roller derby skater, Darlene now focuses her attention and talents on creating unique and highly stylized kinetic wood sculptures.
“Patera Kori” which means “father daughter” in Greek pays tribute to part of their ethnic heritage but most importantly it signifies the uniting of their creative talents into a very special well respected father daughter art team.
