Anyone who has ever dined on Mikasa dinnerware or used Cambridge flatware most likely experienced the artistry of internationally acclaimed tableware artist Gerald Patrick. Starting out as a potter in Los Angeles, his work became well known internationally. Mikasa discovered him and for the next 30 years his name became synonymous with luxury tableware. From Mikasa work came other luxury companies including Lenox, Yamazaki, Reed and Barton and Cambridge Silversmith. Now Gerald has taken his creative energy into a new direction with the introduction of the Gerald Patrick Art Studio in Palm Springs, CA where approximately 100 of his abstract canvases, painted over the last two years since his retirement, are displayed.
