About Patrick Kipper


Patrick Kipper
Metal Arts Conservation
970-663-3363 - pkpatina@aol.com

Patrick’s forty year career in the arts of patination and conservation has given him an impressive national and international reputation as one of the foremost authorities in metal patina design and application as well as the conservation of sculpted and fabricated metal surfaces.

Requests for his vast experience in both patinas and metals conservation have resulted in his working on over 100,000 sculptures in 13 countries, including coast to coast in the U.S., and teaching over 100 patina workshops at universities, museums, foundries (foreign and domestic) and annually in his studio.

Blessed and honored to have worked with renowned sculptors throughout their careers and conserving many private and municipal collections, Patrick felt an obligation to his fellow patineurs, sculptors and collectors to share his knowledge and experiences in these fields. To this end, along with the workshops and consultations, he has written two requested books: “Patinas for Silicon Bronze” for sculptors, patineurs and architects, and “The Care of Bronze Sculpture / Recommended Maintenance Programs” for the collector or newly cast artwork.

Now retired from patina application and conservation, Patrick still consults on both subjects, promotes book sales and up-to-date sculptural conservation procedures and remains a member of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC), The Western Association of Art Conservation (WAAC) and the National Sculpture Society (NSS) as a Professional Associate.
