After completing his studies in art and design at the “Ecole des Beaux Arts de Paris”, Patrick Meyer made his debut in 1985 as a jewelry designer. Immersing himself in the world of Parisian high fashion, Patrick was recognized at this time both as an independent artist selling his work to galleries, boutiques, and stores and as a designer working in collaboration with well known French fashion houses such as Guy Laroche, Charles Jordan, Hanae Mori and Paco Rabanne. During his time with these leaders of contemporary fashion, he created functional accessories for these house labels and one-of-a-kind sculptural jewelry for the runway.
In 1990, after much work and experience within the fashion business, Patrick, still living in Paris, expanded his work with a new line of decorative and functional objects. His modern and pure designs were handmade in silver, brass, and nickel. In the late 90’s, Patrick was at a turning point in
his career and life and decided to relocate to San Francisco, California. It was here that he successfully established himself as a metal sculptor and designer specializing in functional and decorative cast pewter accessories and objects for the home, office, kitchen and bath.
Patrick draws his inspiration from modern and primitive art. His aesthetic places an emphasis on pure futuristic and organic lines which incorporate industrial and ethnic styles resulting in a symbolic and original design. He likes to work with high grade lead-free pewter, a soft metal that’s easily forged, folded, and cast.
Patrick Meyer Studio offers an entire range of objects: flatware, serving pieces, vases, candle holders, bowls and dishes made in the U.S.A. His work can be found in galleries, stores and museum shops throughout the country.
