2021 Designer in Residence Awarded to Eve Doyle, Goldsmith

Eve Doyle's Cubic Cascade Stainless Steel Ear Rings

The benchspace 2021 Designer in Residence is Eve Doyle.

Eve Doyle is a designer and Goldsmith based in Dublin. With a Bachelor of Design(Hons) from NCAD, and technical training through the highly respected Jewellery & Goldsmithing skills course run by the Design & Craft Council in Kilkenny, Eve is the first professional fine metalworker to join us at benchspace for our annual designer residency.

In her current practice Eve is interested in the interplay of angles and lines, the contrasts between smooth solid planes and fine wire work. As well as structural work, Eve makes beautiful jewellery that explores the kinetic nature of line and multiple elements using pioneering techniques that are ready to be elevated into more precious materials.

2021 Designer in Residence

The Designer in Residence programme offers participants the latitude and creative environment to explore new bodies of work or methodologies. It’s designed to bring established and upcoming designer makers or artists to Cork, to showcase their work to a local audience and to contribute fresh perspectives and mentoring to the professional makers at benchspace.

Starting on the 23rd August, the residency will see Eve investigate the concept of the sculptural object as both a vessel and showcase, while also delivering workshops and public talks which will be advertised online over two months.

The 2021 Designer in Residence is supported by Cork City Council Arts.
