Lynne'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. The studio 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. The studio also works with a range of partners on special projects and consultancy how wish to harness our expertise.
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 and 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’s work has been recognised with awards from the Goldsmiths Craft and Design Council, the Scottish International Education Trust, a Dewar Arts Award to fund her studies at the Royal College of Art and most recently a maker bursary from the Inches Carr Trust. She has exhibited widely in the UK, and Europe and America, with organisations such as the Craft Scotland, the Crafts Council, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the National Centre for Craft and Design and London Design Festival. Pieces of Lynne's work are held in the V&A collection, on permanent display at the new V&A Dundee in a dedicated multi-media exhibit, and in the craft collection of the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
