Paisley-born Lynne MacLachlan is one of several jewellers supported by a Dewar Arts Award. Graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College, Lynne won both a Goldsmith Precious Metal Bursary and a Cross Trust Vacation Award in her final year at college.
Lynne’s work intriguingly weaves together such disparate areas as craft and computing, mathematics and nature and she creates exquisite and wearable jewellery from shapes normally associated with biological organisms, as referenced in the work of D’Arcy Thompson.
Lynne is also winner of the Scottish International Education Trust’s Visual Arts Prize which is given to a student at a Scottish art college. A piece of her work has been purchased by the Dundee University Museum. Lynne is a jeweller whose future is assured.
How the Award Helped
The Dewar Arts Award is helping to fund Lynne through the first year of an MA at Royal College of Art in London. During the year she was short-listed for the Argent Young Jewellry Designer of the Year.
I am very grateful for this help, without which I would not be able to undertake my studies at the Royal College of Art.
Lynne's work was showcased in our 10th Anniversary Exhibition, Roots to shoots. Find out more here.
