Zoe is an award winning Silversmith and Jeweller working with traditional techniques in order to create beautiful, tangible pieces that express her fascination with elemental beauty. She is intent upon translating the undulation of natural energy into her pieces and enjoys the process of watching relief, shape and form evolving from silver sheet. Her specialist techniques include the ancient art of Chasing, Repoussé and Snarling. These age-old techniques are a key element to her silversmithing pieces.
In 2018 Zoë won a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship allowing her to travel up to Shetland to study under Master Silversmith and Chaser Rod Kelly. Here she began work on her first exploration into the current theme of ‘Earth Air, Fire, Water.’ She was awarded Silver in the Senior Chasers category Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Awards 2019 for the piece she began on her scholarship in Shetland.
Zoe enjoy’s the challenge of working to commission on interesting and unique pieces of work. Please contact her if you would like to discuss further.
