Patterson has long had an intrinsic fascination with African Art, in particular with masks.  The genesis of his 'Uttered From The Past' series resulted when he made a birthday gift for his wife; later he decided to do more. The mask series consists of twelve designs with each of the designs being unique to one of the twelve months of the year.  Meticulous detail is given to each of the cast bronze works of art. Each of these distinctive masks receives a unique series of patina applications. The smaller scale of these works is more conducive for indoor settings such as private homes, businesses and galleries. Please forward inquiries about this collection to
