Caring for Acrylic, Resin & Glass


Glass

Glass furniture requires low maintenance and is a timeless addition to your interior, reflecting light and creating the feeling of more space.

Glass Acrylic

In Timothy Oulton’s Spur and Xylem blocks, a delicate crafting process brings together reclaimed driftwood with sharp glass acrylic. The wood is arranged manually piece by piece before the acrylic is added to the mould. At this moment, the driftwood – a living material - interacts with the acrylic, causing air bubbles to occur and sometimes spontaneous marks to the wood. The reaction is different in every piece, making each block truly unique. Glass acrylic is impervious to light, retaining its clarity over time.

Crystalline Acrylic

Timothy Oulton’s crystalline acrylic range uses exceptional UV resistant acrylic, clearer than glass. The highest level of precision results in a pure and uncompromising clarity. The acrylic is meticulously cut to shape for each individual piece of furniture, and the edges sanded completely smooth. Finished components are secured in place by hand with shiny steel screws or high strength professional adhesive which is carefully heated to dissolve into the acrylic, preventing any marks and ensuring a crystal clear finish that sparkles when the light catches it.

Resin

Featured on Timothy Oulton’s classic 4 Beam collection, the smooth, hard resin is a wonderful visual contrast to the rugged timber encased within. Resin has a cloudy appearance compared to glass and acrylic. Resin may start to yellow with age and exposure to light, this is to be expected over time and is normal.
