I find these stands fascinating. The pattern resembles water color leaves, or alcohol ink on the surface of clear ecoresin. They are both subtle and beautiful, patterned with neutral grays and blue-greens. Limited quantity, and each stand is different.
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 about 3/8″ 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 have are quite sturdy with a very little flex to firmly grip your artwork without squeezing it too tightly. Clean stands with warm soapy water if necessary, Isopropyl, Acetone and other solvents will damage ecoresin.
Designed with the artist in mind, these stands are low profile and unobtrusive giving the spotlight to your artwork.
