    Zemer Peled’s work examines the beauty and brutality of the natural world. Her sculptural language is formed by her surrounding landscapes and nature, engaging with themes of memory, identity and place. Her works are formed from thousand of porcelain shards constructed into large-scale/small-scale sculptures and installations.

    Peled was born and raised in Israel. She earned her MA at the Royal College of Art (UK). In recent years, her work has been exhibited internationally at venues including Sotheby’s, Saatchi Gallery (London), and the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art (Kansas City). She has been featured in Vogue, O Magazine, Elle and other international publications.

    Her work is found in many private collections around the world and museum collections, such as the Fuller Craft Museum, the Crocker Art Museum, and the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation.
