Chess game pieces in polyester resin by Armand Pierre Fernandez.
Earlier this month I took this picture of a stunning block of resin in the window of a Paris art gallery in the Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen. I could not get a better picture, so I knew I needed to do some research when I got home. I discovered that the creator is Armand Pierre Fernandez and his pieces are current (1990’s) and being sold for tens of thousands of dollars.
(This was another piece of art in the same window. I would have loved to see it in person but the gallery was closed. I am tracking down more about this artist as well.)
So,in my search for the chess pieces in resin I discovered 1stdibs. (first dibs)
1stdibs is an antiques dealer website. Their site lead me to an even more interesting discovery.
Resin artist Romeo Paris who’s pieces are from the 70’s.
The website features these lamps on behalf of the Regis Royant Gallery in Paris. I hope they inspire you as much as they did for me.

The following are lamps where they wrote that the inclusions are in lucite. They are also from the same artist. (Lucite is a brand name for resin as well.)

These are amazing! I love the lamps with the paint brushes in them!
Thanks for sharing these! I love art that is usable and unusual.
Oh how I wish I could afford the resin it must take to make these.
I'm already imagining so many fabulous resin lamps in my head.
I enjoy working with larger items like this, and would LOVE to do this but I simply can't afford the resin for that large of a project :'( :'( :'(
