Resin Tableware on Either Side of the Pacific Ocean
I acquired my first piece of resin via an ex-boyfriend. I once read about a trio of design grads in Australia who launched a cool resin-only jewelry and home accessory company in the late 1980s called Dinosaur Designs. I fell in love with the colour, shape and size of their jewelry and my ex just so happened to be travelling to Sydney, so I asked him to pick me up a bangle. Ever since that bangle came into my possession, I’ve been following the young, entrepreneurial company and have even visited a few of their stores around the world.
To me, resin is a special material. It doesn’t have the same weight or delicate nature as porcelain. Resin has a special translucent quality to it that lets light through. It’s very smooth to the touch and colours are softened in a finished resin product.
Let me introduce them to you- I just have to point out my observation: Is it ironic or what that all three resin design companies are based on the Pacific Ocean?
