Patera Kori Studios
KINETIC WOOD SCULPTURES
Patera Kori Studios produces the collaborative artistic efforts of the father-daughter team of Eduardo and Darlene.
Darlene encouraged her father Eduardo to pursue his interest in art more than 25 years ago. This seemed at odds with his first career choice of nuclear physics and engineering. Combining left-brain and right-brain activities has produced outstanding art and led Eduardo to found an art school, acting as director from 1992 until 2002. He works in many mediums, including watercolors, acrylics, clay, sculpture, and, most recently, unique kinetic wood sculptures. Darlene — a graduate of The George Washington University, creative marketing manager, mother of two boys, and competitive roller derby skater — now focuses her attention and talent on collaborating to create these sculptures.
Patera Kori means “father daughter” in Greek and pays tribute to a part of Darlene’s and Eduardo’s family heritage. More significantly, it describes the union of their creative talents.
