A Mini Resin Exhibition at GoMA

I was so excited when I walked into GoMA yesterday and this is what I spotted: a wall of resin platters by a little Aussie design company that you might have heard of: Dinosaur Designs. It was an absolute privilege to see these extraordinary pieces up close and personal.
Well I'm not sure if you'd call them platters because they stand well over a metre high. See that guy on the far right of the picture? He gives you a better idea of just how big these platters are.

Here's a couple of closer shots.
This one is my favourite because it reminds me of a resin pendant I made a couple of years back.
But it's not until you flip the pendant over that you see the similarities: the colours; the blending, and the swirl effect. It's striking, isn't it?
And yet, the two pieces are coloured using entirely different techniques: the colour in the platter is embedded in the resin whereas the colour in the pendant is a surface application. Still both results are stunning.

If you're a resin enthusiast and you happen to be in Brisbane any time this year, check out GoMA and the wonderful platters created by Dinosaur Designs. You will be pretty impressed.

'Til next time.....
