Dazzle Invites | Lynne MacLachlan
Lynne MacLachlan’s designs play with light, space and colour, intending to create visual delight for wearer and viewer, leading the use of 3D printing technology and colour in design. Lynne produces contemporary, striking jewellery and objects that will endure, turn heads and start conversations, aimed at those who share Lynne’s love of colour, geometry, innovative design.
Lynne takes an experimental approach with digital tools, exploring and pushing the capabilities of these, using bespoke software tools and 3D printing to materialise complex forms. Combining these tools with meticulous hand finishing techniques, such as dying, polishing and construction, elevates the pieces to become artful pieces of cutting-edge design that showcase the latest creative applications of the technology.
After a degree in aerospace engineering, Lynne returned to education to study jewellery and metalwork design, with a desire to reconnect with materials and making. Following this Lynne completed an MA at the prestigious Royal College of Art and completed a PhD with the highly regarded design department of the Open University, researching how designer-makers find creative opportunities through tools and applying these strategies to multi-material 3D printing.
Lynne MacLachlan is showing an exclusive range of jewellery as part of the virtual Dazzle exhibition – Dazzle Invites.
Dazzle invites 30 contemporary jewellers, showing unique, one-off or limited edition designs, created specially for the exhibition. All pieces are available to purchase from 17 November – 10 January.
