A NEW MATERIAL
Hannah Elisabeth Jones graduated from Manchester School of Art, Manchester Metropolitan University with First Class Honours, BA Textiles in Practice. She is the inventor of a new, flexible material called 'BioMarble' (patent pending). BioMarble has a unique and intriguing surface pattern, but most importantly its main ingredient is waste paper.
Throughout the past year, Jones has been developing BioMarble to perfect its durability, visual aesthetic and quality of colour. Geometric units are cut from a palette of different material colours, then stitched together in an ombré formation, using traditional patchwork techniques to form 3-Dimensional tessellations.
So far, BioMarble has won numerous awards and commissions, and has been exhibited at Manchester School of Art (2017), MoOD Brussels (2017), London Design Festival (2017), the Surface and Materials Show (2017), the Northern Design Festival (2017), Somerset House (2017), the Surface and Design Show (2018), Ravensbourne University (2018), the GK Gallery (2018) and Materials for Architecture (2018). Upcoming exhibitions include the Great Exhibition of the North (2018) and London Design Festival (2018).
