Most of Patricia's work in glass is created for use in jewellery:

"You might wonder how a jeweller got into hot glass: My main interest always has been the human body. A glassblower’s work is very physical, comparable to dancing – good glassblowing is fluid like the molten material, and well “choreographed”. You interact with people and space, you sweat and there is a sense of danger – you are immersed in a bath of adrenaline and endorphins – completely addictive. So different to the usual jeweller's tranquil work on the peg!"
