The work of J.E. Paterak quietly reflects a concern for our planet’s health by drawing the eye to the smallest details found in nature. She strives to draw attention to the nuance of wonder. Whether moss brooches “wrought” in glass and metal, a bud cast into silver, a fantasical take on a detail of a flower, or fungi and stems represented with a mere stroke of a brush, what is ephemeral is suspended in time to draw the viewer/wearer in. Nothing can surpass understanding the science and the importance of plants functions within our ecological systems, but it all begins with observation, awe and then perhaps reverence.
