About the Artist

Patty Cokus (Tukwila) received 2007 GAP Award funding for professional photographic documentation of a new body of work to be shown in the exhibition Amuse, Amaze, Amend: Jewelry Art for the Uninhibited. The exhibition will be shown at Facere Jewelry Art Gallery in Seattle in August 2007. Patty employs materials such as metal, glass, aspirin, butter, wine, and olive oil. In her Articulated Frusta series, she hand fabricates sterling silver to produce forms that expand and collapse with the slightest touch or movement of the wearer, producing subtle sounds as they shift.
