Joey and Flora

Joey and Flora

Joey Kirkpatrick and Flora C. Mace live and have their studio in Seattle, Washington on a farm in the Olympic Peninsula near the Washington Coast. The two artists have worked collaboratively for more than thirty five years after meeting at the Pilchuck Glass School in 1979. They have created a diverse body of work that includes both blown glass vessels with applied imagery and sculpture fabricated with wood, glass and other mixed media. The artists, respected for their innovative work, have recently had a solo exhibition at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, which featured a wide scope of their work over the past thirty years, including the cast panels with illustrations of the “first facts” of bird identification, which were created with applied glass powder drawings. Mace and Kirkpatrick are considered among the first pioneers of the Studio Glass Movement.

Joey and Flora have exhibited, lectured and taught extensively internationally. They taught for twelve years at Pilchuck Glass School. Their collaborative work is included in collections and museums around the world, including the Corning Museum of Glass, MY; The Detroit Institute of Art, Detroit, MI; The Boston Musuem of Fine Art, Boston, MA; Hokkaido Museum, Japan; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, MY; Musee de Arts Decoratifs, Lausanne, Switzerland; Seattle Art Museum, WA; and the National Musuem of American Art, Renwick, Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.
