SOANE

Digital Soane, was a competition organised in collaboration with the Royal College of Art Sir John Soane's Museum with the support of the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. In March 2014, the bust of Sir John Soane, which sits centre stage in the Museum’s Dome Area, was 3D scanned and digitally shattered. The fragmented pieces were then used as the starting point for a new object created by RCA Jewellery & Metal graduates.

Haidée's winning ‘Collar’ Vase dramatically contrasts between the flowing organic replica of the fragment, and the angular facades that attribute its function. The piece has retained the feeling of a fragment or a slice of the bust; this with the combination of the naturalistic white marble material will give the impression that you actually have a piece of Sir John Soane’s bust on your mantelpiece. The vase has been designed to hold one large flower or a small flower arrangement, The lean of the vase assists in the arrangement. Haidée has developed two more vases for Sir John Soane's Museum. They are aptly names 'Brow' Vase and 'Drape' Vase and were developed from selected fragments and cast in Marble and granite jesmonite.
