About Zoe Dufour


My sculpting techniques are informed by antique, Renaissance, and 19th century practices, that I have combined with contemporary materials and ceramic hand-building techniques.

While I sculpt, there is a strong dialogue between practices and thinking, a direct relationship between the hand and head.

Nature is my constant source of inspiration, as well as the materials I work with and the influence they have on the process of sculpting.

I hope to achieve works that clarify the beauty of my subjects, through the amalgamation of my studies.

Potential for tactile, emotional, and physical connections between objects, space, people and nature are what draw me to sculpt.
