About

First developed in 2010, Ceramic Patchwork is Zoë’s creative and distinctive solution to the challenge of mending broken ceramics, which sees her apply the tradition of hand-stitched patchwork in a completely new way. 

Reassembled using only fabric, tension and stitch, her pieces are seductively tactile, with a surprising handling quality.  Each piece is unique, with a flawed beauty that celebrates imperfection.  They are designed to delight and to be treasured for the long-term.
