THE ART


“ART SPEAKS WHEN WORDS ARE UNABLE TO EXPLAIN”

An Artist has an intrinsic quality of expression which the lame eye cannot identify.

Resin is a unique compound that has actually been around for centuries. If you have ever seen a piece of amber, you have seen nature’s version of resin! In addition to the naturally occurring versions, they can be made synthetically as is the case with resins available for jewelry, art, crafts and commercial use.

Ancient cultures extracted resins into their beverages and smoked the material as a way to induce a dream state. Greek culture believed that amber was sunlight captured in a solid form. The Greeks also learned that rubbing amber could produce an electrical charge. They named amber ‘electron’ which is where the word electricity comes from.  In nature, trees will secret it as a protective mechanism to protect themselves from pests. For our purposes though, we like resin to do other things like protect our floors, countertops, or even be worn as jewelry.
