Sir John Soane x RCA

Sir John Soane’s Museum announced this week that it will be teaming up with the Royal College of Art and the Jerwood Charitable Foundation to shatter the famous bust of Sir John Soane – digitally shatter that is. The bust that sits proudly in the centre of the museum will undergo a digital transformation using the latest in 3D scanning technology. It will be digitally fragmented and these fragments will create the starting point for some of the RCA’s most esteemed alumni to create a unique piece of jewellery. Judged by a panel of industry experts, the alumni from the RCA’s Goldsmith, Silversmith and Jewellery courses will be selected in June and their finished pieces will be available in the museum shop later this year.
