Jie Wu creates miniature boxes composed of blocks of resin with colourful marble-like patterns incorporating chunks of wood. She explores the perceived values of natural and man-made materials and elevates their joint aesthetic potential.
Jie creates the boxes by casting a special type of antique rosewood in resin made up of different colours. The blocks of wood and resin are cut using a CNC machine and are then polished to create a high-gloss finish
Jie has continued developing the collection, adding larger pieces, such as furniture and ornaments.
Founder Jie Wu began creation of the project whilst studying for her Masters in Textiles Design at the Royal College of Art.
