To create her pieces, Roberts makes a clay model into which she embeds copper features. The glass has a soft, luminous quality, while being opaque and highly textured, as is characteristic of pâte de verre. The edges are very thin and quite randomly and organically formed, creating an intricate and delicate outline for the sculptures. Pâte de verre is a technique that was first developed by the ancient Egyptians, but Patty has added her own contemporary flair, creating dramatic sculpture for today.
