Designer and owner Pauline Curtiss has been creating pattern for her business Patina since 2001. At first beginning with designing and hand printing patterns on interior spaces such as floors, walls and ceilings, she moved to larger scale projects such as underpasses and urban landscapes. Bringing handmade beautiful pieces of art into being has been central to her career. Designing custom rugs and tiles which incorporate her love of texture and sculpture was the first leap into manufacturing products. A lover of amazing food and it's arrangement and display for entertaining, platters were a natural progression for her talents. She has become fixated with designing lines of dinnerware which lend themselves to pattern and collage.
