Patrick Morris was born in New Zealand, where pottery played a large role in his early years. He trained as a sculptor after finishing high school, before moving to London. Morris attended Central Saint Martins College of Art, where he studied ceramic design—the Sky Planter being his final degree project. Following graduation, Morris spent two years testing the Sky Planter and launched Boskke with his brother, Jake Morris, and friend, Ross Stevenson. Patrick Morris is currently in the Masters Product Design program at the Royal College of Art in London, still continuing to act as the Creative Director for Boskke.
