Operating as usual

Dolly Cake.

This proud cake captivates, infused with aspirations that are reverent and regal.
Elements fly in flamboyant shapes and sizes, robed in a sea of beaded confetti and glass crystals.
The eye dances, blinded among its colorful and animated features.

An antique, porcelain doll emerges from the artistic fray, dominating the composition.
Its innocent face sports a grander crown with a toothy grin and a tongue full of raspberry fruit.
A comical baby on its tower is a sparkling facade, delighted and consumed.

Its grand veneer tumbles into the surrealist melting pot.
The artist discerningly molds this bright bountiful visage.
The mirage is exposed, as its true form comes to life.
Past the garlands of decoration, she has taken a slice, only to reveal a warped chasm inside.
A vain field of vision arises with an eager swarm of eyes.

As one portion falls, the others will follow.
Within a dismantled frame, this figure stands, as if ready to be woven together again.
In its transformative journey, the Dolly Cake melts, becoming a new and inviting friend.

A wondrous medley of shape, color and opulent ingenuity tumbles into an extraordinary work of art by Jeff & Susan Wise. Through a mixture of high karat gold and sterling silver, sapphire, druzy, jade, pyrite, agate, quartz and diopside create a piece to capture the senses in color and texture. Around the wrist, the work is a jubilation of intricate artistry and intrigue as the Wises compose a work that touches upon the outer realms of the unknown. A lone beauty, outlined in the beacons of space. The artists touch the heart with sheer mastery of material and expert design to compose a place in time. An illustration to set the soul afire as they set their sights on an exploration through the stars.

A shower of silver jingles with every tilt and sway of the head, as if tiny and precious coins, joined together in sumptuous elegance and delight. ⁠

Feel radiant in Enric Majoral's Silver Party Earrings as seen in @instyle 's January 2021 issue (page 20)⁠


Love is above any notion we can fully define in words. As it matures, it continues to endure through time. Together, we discover what stirs our heart or awakens the soul. Through our trips and falls, it is in this most genuine, sincere form of affection that we finally align with our purest selves, and forge an eternal bond.⁠

Wherever you are in life's greatest journey, we are here to meet you.⁠

We are so excited to be a part of @rockymountainbride 's National 2021 issue featuring the works of #patinartists, and #philpoirier⁠

Dear Friends,
We send our deepest thanks to you for joining us on a fruitful adventure through A Season of Gratitude

Looking back to the heart of what we celebrate, our oeuvre of Patina messages urged us all; our community, our team & our artists to meditate on what truly fuels our souls each & every day

In the coming weeks, our founders, Allison & Ivan Barnett will launch the year anew, sharing our drive, mission and vision for the future

Until then, enjoy Patina in the gallery and online!

Elevated discs swing and sparkle as Enric Majoral's Silver party Earrings dance in the light. A shower of silver jingles with every tilt and sway of the head, as if tiny and precious coins, joined together in sumptuous elegance and delight.⁠

#itspartytime #2021

The luster of Santa Fe during the winter season inspires our search for peace by allowing us moments of quiet reflection. The white, silent nature of the season moves us toward a meditation on the majesty of nature and color, and on the representation of light and touch and the subtlety of each.⁠

Linger and explore our Season of Gratitude and draw in the inspiration from great art this new year #linkinbio⁠

Utilizing her masterful shaping of 18K & 22K yellow gold, Petra Class sculpts a delicate statement to gracefully fall from the neck. Golden bars are crafted to seamlessly link with one another, forming a brilliant necklace strand. At the base of her piece, the artist crafts an assemblage of diamond charms, affixed to extensions of gold. This milieu of lustrous gems twinkles and glows as they settle into an ornate design. The eye pines for such sweet effervescence as soft sparkles pillar from the tender and stunning festoon of scintillating delight. In varied shape and color, faceted triangles intermingle with luminous circles and squares. Champagne, brown and beige color palette provides a refined, yet sumptuous feast for the soul. The artist cleverly melds enthusiasm with sophistication, as she transforms the exquisite work into a festive revelry.

Ring in the New Year with Patina 🥂🍾

#curateyourlook #patinagallery #soulstirringworks #beautyovertime

Warmly wishing you a safe and happy new year,⁠

Allison & Ivan Barnett, and the Patina Team

As part of A Season of Gratitude, Doug Menuez shares, Steve Jobs Explaining Ten Year Technology Development Cycles

Menuez witnessed the aspirational genius & dedication of Jobs and his team while working in the race of 1980s Silicon Valley. He captured pioneers in the tech revolution, who challenged & built upon what was possible. What soon followed helped redefine how we communicate & connect with one another in our every day.

Mindful Meditations S2 Ep8 Finale: Gratitude by Claire Kahn Reveal

Allison gives us a first, intimate and exclusive look of Kahn’s paper cut collage, set to release worldwide on the Winter Solstice, December 21st at 9am MDT at

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Gratitude will go to support The New Mexico Wildlife Center, “Connecting people and wildlife for an abundant tomorrow.”
(Mission Statement, New Mexico Wildlife Center)

Delving into intention, she will take viewers on a journey into Kahn’s artful process, from the drawing board, to design, to piecing the composition together, giving us a deeper understanding of how Gratitude came to be.

From the other side of her studio, Kahn composes a multifaceted, two-dimensional collage, opposite from where she creates her extraordinary jewelry, exclusive to Patina.
In layer by layer, her paper assemblage unfolds, infused with the intimate spirit, connection and vibrancy that drives the soul of the season, as we all look behind and ahead to a new year.

Allison reveals Kahn’s preliminary sketches, in what the artist calls, Story Scrolls, placed parallel to her finished work. Armored in variegated shapes with a multitude of lines and curves, a geometrical lattice appears across the scrolls, into Gratitude, showing how Kahn brilliantly maps emotion into its linear designs. Making Gratitude, every incision cuts and shapes another sheet. When combined, they reveal a network of complexities as stilled meditation slowly turns to solace and peace.

Don't miss our Gratitude Season finale of Mindful Meditations S2, Episode 8!

Allison will share an exclusive first look at a one-of-a-kind work of art, Gratitude, from New Mexico renaissance artist and friend, Claire Kahn

For over a century, artists have found their way to New Mexico, as we did, drawn by the poetic light, organic tones of the landscape and indigenous cultures. During the past decade or more, Santa Fe has become an important international arts destination and attracts visitors from around the globe. This allows Patina to present very sophisticated works against a unique historic and cultural backdrop. We have a formula that we feel describes the quality we seek in the works that we exhibit, "Patina = Beauty over Time." This might apply to Santa Fe as much as to the works we select and love.

Established in 1999, Patina exhibits soul-stirring clay, wood, sculpture, fiber and other mixed media objects. Our gallery holds a unique position in the field because we also show studio jewelry in the same gallery space with larger works. We stage them in a manner that allows 'aesthetic discussions' to take place, a kind of dialogue between the jewelry and different objects. We have always felt that great design should inhabit all the works that we show, regardless of scale. We look for quality of techniques, design and character.

With close to 100 featured artists online and in the gallery, and with many exhibitions featured in the gallery of all inspirational ranges, per year, Patina represents a forward thinking gallery located in a central and cultural hub of Santa Fe.
