This handy little stands are made in our shop in Salt Lake City Utah with 3Form eco resin squares and stainless steel vertical rods.
Eco resin is a proprietary product of 3Form made with up to 30% recycled materials. Through a partnership with the Clever Octopus (a creative reuse center) these materials are available to artists for all sorts of projects. We like them best as stands for glass artwork!
Each stand is 4″ x 4″ square and .5″ thick. The stainless steel rods are 1/8″ thick and coated with a clear heat shrink plastic to protect your artwork. The taller rods are 1.75″ tall, and the shorter center support rod is 1/2″ tall. This rod supports your artwork one half inch above the stand.
These stands are remarkably stable for the size and are recommended for artwork up to 8″ x 10″ or a 9″ circle. The stands are sized for artwork that is 1/4″ to 5/16″ thick (4-6mm) a standard fusing thickness for two layers of art glass or two layers of single strength float glass or one layer of 1/4″ float glass. The rods are quite sturdy with a little flex to firmly grip your artwork without squeezing it too tightly.
Designed with the artist in mind, these stands are low profile and giving the spotlight to your artwork.
The Aurora stand is particularly fun for glass as it has many of the same color change properties as dichroic glass, but in a resin form! The primary color shift is red/yellow, but if you look at the stand from some angles, you’ll see the blue green shift as well. Gorgeous!
