Zachary Eastwood-Bloom British, b. 1980

Zachary Eastwood-Bloom's work explores diverse materials including ceramics, glass, bronze, jesmonite, sound and video. His interest lies in the intersection between the physical and the immaterial and the historical and the cutting-edge. He references classical imagery, adopts digital aesthetics and uses leading technologies. For one body of work, Eastwood-Bloom used 3D software to scan busts from the British Museum and the Royal Academy of Arts, which he digitally manipulated before 3D printing and casting into clay: the process transitioned from the physical through the digital resulting in the physical.


Eastwood-Bloom’s MA project was exhibited as part of the Crafts Council’s touring exhibition Lab Craft: Digital Adventures in Contemporary Craft in 2010 and 2011 and he has exhibited with the V&A and the Royal British Society of Sculptors.


He produced a commission for the Jurassic Coast in Dorset for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad and was shortlisted for the British Ceramics Biennial Award in 2013. Eastwood-Bloom produced the first sculptural edition for the Royal Academy of Arts and he has been selected for the Jerwood Makers Commission 2015.


Eastwood-Bloom has produced a public commission for the London office of Marex Spectron and recently finished working on a commission for Aviva Investors in collaboration with Campbell Architects to create a work that is integrated into the façade and interior of a new building in Hanover Square.
