Jewellery designer and Royal College of Art graduate Mark Bloomfield is a digital craftsman based at London’s iconic Oxo Tower. He is also Professor of Design, Innovation and Technology in the School of Creative Arts at the University of Hertfordshire.
Mark has designed for some of the most influential and prominent designers, including Asprey, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith and Matthew Williamson. In addition he has worked in film and TV making jewellery for Titanic, Judge Dredd, Braveheart and Poirot.
As a leader in his field, using traditional craftsmanship techniques, digital tools and manufacturing technologies, Mark continues to dissolve boundaries and redefine the process of making through his exploration of the possibilities offered by current and emerging manufacturing technologies. In 2012 he won the Materialise World 3D Print Award.
Through his company, electrobloom, his fascination with the natural world is reflected in his renditions of flora that are digitally manufactured and finished by hand.
All of Mark’s current work is customisable and encourages creative participation as the combinations of shapes and colours present a never ending world of possibilities.
Mark creatively combines traditional craft techniques with advanced digital processes resulting in jewellery that is engaging, surprising, thought provoking and sparks conversation.
