Lynne Maclachlan


"experimenting with the latest digital technology"

Lynne MacLachlan's work plays with light, space and colour; vibrant geometric forms reveal ephemeral, shimmering optical patterns, crossing the boundaries of design, art and fashion. She has a passion for experimenting with the latest digital technology, using cutting edge tools and materials in combination with traditional techniques to find creative applications to intrigue and delight the viewer.

Lynne Maclachlan's first degree in aerospace engineering was the perfect background to draw on to embrace 3D printing technology for her bold jewellery. The designer returned to education at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art to study jewellery and metalwork design followed by a Masters degree at the Royal College of Art where she was awarded a Dewar Arts Award to fund her studies. Lynne's jewellery has gained gold awards from the Goldsmiths Craft and Design Council and the Scottish International Education Trust Visual Art prize. 

Lynne's jewellery has won many awards including gold at Goldsmiths Craft & Design Council, featuring in their touring exhibition ‘Lab Craft’ , shown at the V&A Dundee and participated in live projects with Tiffany & Co and Swarovski. 

Alongside her design work Lynne is currently undertaking a PhD with the Design Transformations group of the Open University, researching the role of generative design tools in the creative process and is a visiting lecturer at University for the Creative Arts.
