Zoë Slater Ceramics
Zoë Slater is a ceramicist working in Glasgow. Her work wanders between the functional and the sculptural, drawing inspiration from nature and natural materials. As such, her range of tableware features a natural and moody colour palette, utilising texture through slip brush strokes and scoring. She is commited to thinking about sustainability in the production of her work, and uses homemade ash glazes collected from wood fires as well as firing to lower stoneware temperature in an electric kiln.
Zoë has been making ceramics for the past five years. She learnt her trade as a visiting apprentice at Shin Chul's studio in Icheon, South Korea. During this time she learnt traditional Korean throwing techniques, which she also teaches at her studio in Glasgow. Her work can be found at local shops such as Neighbourhood, as well as in Purslane restaurant in Edinburgh and Craig Miller's in St Monans.
