Eastwood-Bloom grew up in Yorkshire in the 1980’s. On leaving school he attended an art foundation course where he discovered clay and the three-dimensional form. From there he went on to study for a degree at Edinburgh College of Art, where he was introduced to digital three-dimensional design programmes. While attending the Royal College of Art in 2008 Eastwood-Bloom started to use processes such as Rapid Prototyping and CNC milling to assist in realising his three-dimensional designs.
