Zoe Robertson : Flocking Marvellous

New works by Zoe Robertson (UK) (avril 2010)

Zoe Robertson, Neckpiece, 2009

Zoe Robertson – Neckpiece ‘Get Flocked’ 2009 – Acrylic, Powder Coated Steel, Rubber, Flock Fibre

Zoe has a passion for unusual materials and enjoys the exploration of non-precious unconventional materials. The sensory and aesthetic inherent qualities of materials such as rubber and plastic are of particular interest.
The fascination with exploiting the sense of touch has led to the recent discovery of flock fibre as a new material and process to investigate. Immediately seduced and surprised by the diverse range of fibres experimentation led her to examine the relationship between wearable three dimensional forms and flocked surfaces.
Zoe is a full time lecturer at the world renowned School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University, UK ( There is an interesting lecture from Zoe Robertson (about flocking techniques) on the BIAD website and further info/podcasts on the Jewellery dept.). Prior to this she worked within the educational department at the Design Museum in London. Alongside lecturing she is an active designer maker who regularly exhibits her work throughout Europe. Recent exhibitions include Parures, Flockage: the flock phenomenon, and Twelve Glass Cabinets.
