Koke Gardens

Patty Goya

Patty Goya has always been drawn to the creative arts. She taught herself mosaics, stained and fused glass. Working with interior designers, she created mosaic signs and tables for commercial businesses. She also made quirky art sculptures covering objects like toasters, cowboy boots and electric coffee pots.

In 2012, Patty discovered a kokedama in San Francisco’s Japantown. She fell in love with this old Japanese art form of growing plants in a ball of soil covered in moss. She researched and practiced making them until she felt confident enough to give them as gifts and sell them at local markets.

Kokedamas exudes simplicity, warmth and natural earthiness. Patty hopes they bring you as much happiness as it brings her in creating them.
