Jaguar UK to display clay model of C-X16 Concept at Clerkenwell Design Week

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 23, 2012

Jaguar UK will showcase the C-X16 vehicle concept at the Clerkenwell Design Week in London from May 22 to 24, 2012, through full-size model sculptures, which will be made by skilled clay modelers. Advanced Design Director Julian Thomson at Jaguar Cars shared that although the company is "one of the most technologically advanced companies in the field of product development," they still "believe in the sense of artistry."

He related that emotional connections are "at the heart" of their automobiles and the conventional traditional procedure of working with clay with "some of the best sculptors in the world" enables the company to "refine them into the purest surfaces." Also to be showcase at the event are three custom sculptures depicting the past, present and future of Jaguar that are based on the bonnets of an E-type, C-X16 and C-X75.

The artwork are commissioned by Julian Thomson and painted by two designers from the Jaguar design team. The 1966 XJ13, the only one in the world, is displayed next to an XKR-S and an XFR. The modern automobiles are designed, built and engineered in the United Kingdom. They feature the very best in British creativity as well as industry-leading engineering. The Jaguar C-X16 clay model, XKR-S, XFR, XJ13 and Jaguar sculptures are viewable in the Farmiloe Building.
