The designs are ‘drawn’ onto a silicone sheet and peeled off once they’re dry, at which point Clare sprays them with lacquer to preserve them. According to Clare this process is exclusive to her and creates exclusive, one-off pieces.

Clare Knox Bentham is a Manchester-based designer, creating large-scale illustrative installations in bright-coloured plastic which can be wall or window-hung.

Details

Clare’s inspiring range of work includes incredibly detailed wall hangings, smaller-scale pieces and framed artwork, and distinctive jewellery. Comprising a selection of necklaces and rings, Clare’s jewellery has been described by the National Centre for Craft and Design as ‘resembling a series of drawings for the body’.

She is interested in the concept of turning drawings and illustrations into three dimensions using an industrial process of heat extruded EVA that she ‘drew’ freehand with. This results in 3Dimensional forms of her illustrations that consist of line and loose mark-makings that she created, but then taken further beyond just a flat piece of paper.

She has also used this material and technique to create a jewellery collection, which has been described as “resembling a series of drawings for the body. The saturated colour and slippery surfaces allude to precious lacquerwork whilst fluid forms blur the line between liquid and solid.”  ‘Secret Second Life’ - National Centre for Craft and Design

These are particularly interesting to me since I think these best demonstrate how she took original flat 2Dimensional illustrations and line and transformed it into a texture or pattern to be used in a completely new 3Dimensional design and even worn on the bod, really taking drawing and illustration beyond its ordinary confinements of a flat sheet of paper.

Main ideas/concepts that Clare Knox Bentham has inspired:

  • Use of line and mark-making in 3D form
  • Transferring loose, sketchy lines from illustrations into more 3D ideas.
  • Illustration on the body?
  • Illustrating with new materials; extruded plastic, string...?
