Lynne MacLachlan Studio produces colourful, sculptural jewellery and objects, thoughtfully designed and made to bring colour and joy into your life. Our pieces range from accessible everyday jewellery to collectable contemporary craft pieces to large-scale interior installations.
Lynne takes a creative approach with digital tools and materials, 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 endure.
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’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, 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 the 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.
