Zoë' s work is mainly ceramic, yet textile in origin. Using both traditional and digital techniques she decorates the surface of her handmade tiles with a combination of drawings, textile samples, found papers and glazes, often adding wire, fabric or thread to the work, for a contrast in surface texture.
Living near Wirksworth, the stunning views inspire her on a daily basis. She often uses the local landscape as a starting point. Most recent landscapes have been larger and more ambitious in scale and format. Zoë has also started to work to commission.
Lockdown was the start of a new direction into cityscapes, beginning with Florence, Rome and Barcelona. These textile and ceramic pieces are an attempt to capture the excitement, romance and pure artistry of these beautiful cities.
