  • Nebula Clovis (2) - Devereux_Patchen

James Devereux & David Patchen

Meet the artists

Having first met through social media and at a glass conference in Murano, David Patchen and James Devereux’s unique collaboration didn’t officially begin until 2019 in San Francisco. United in harmony, their collaborative artworks combine Patchen’s patterns and Devereux’s intrinsic forms. Making their first collaborative Clovis sculpture at a fundraising party and their second during a demo to hundreds of people, their relationship has continued during Covid with Patchen shipping pattern blanks from San Francisco to Devereux in the UK.

For Patchen, his artwork always begins with the pattern. In the early stages of his career, he would sketch pattern ideas; both to consider colour and design and to record possibilities for future use. Now, when he makes murrine, he often has a vision of a colour combination that he would like to explore, or will make a variation of different forms – cutting and arranging different pieces together to achieve the perfect mosaic for blowing. Devereux then uses these intricate patterns to sculpt and breathe life into the artwork.
