HOW IS IT MADE?
When making our epoxy resin art tables, we first check that our hardwood bases are durable and aesthetically balanced. We refine these slabs of wood with a sander, making the surface perfectly smooth and level to ensure the final product is of an impeccable standard
Once this is complete, we move onto the resin artwork. After years of working with resin, we have learned how to maneuver and control the fluid medium. It can be an incredibly wild and organic material to work with; however, once you learn its behaviour, you have learned how to create space for the medium to ‘do it’s thing.’ We use only the highest quality resin inks and resin pigments when creating our ocean palette of colours. Over the years, we have discovered and perfected techniques using heat, layering, and dispersion to create ocean resin waves. Once completed, we wait 24 hours for the resin to cure (dry and harden). After this, we repeat the process over the top of the first layer of resin to create depth and multiple waves, which again takes 24 hours to dry.
After this process, we refine the droplets of resin formed on the back of the wood slab. We use our sanding tools to create a beautifully smooth and polished surface. Then we treat our timber with wood oil to give it a beautiful sheen and trap in the natural oils. The final step is to fit the steel legs to the base of the table, and then she is complete!
