Accent Table Artist
Krzysztof Zarycki began his journey into the art of furniture making in 2010. His father, who is also a furniture maker, was his inspiration. Krzysztof, very quickly, realized that he too shared his father’s passion and creativity for furniture making.
Krzysztof created his first project in 2017 and strives for perfection in every piece he makes. He combines the naturalness of wood with the modernity of epoxy resin in his designs. He draws inspiration from landscapes, which he puts into his design for the countertop.
Each table is handmade and the process is a labour of love. Many stages are involved, which take time and the utmost patience. First, he prepares the wood by sanding the entire surface. Then he perfects the outer surface and re-sands the piece until it is perfectly smooth. The resin is then poured in stages, often up to 7 layers. After the final layer is poured a drying period of at least a week is needed for the resin to be fully hardened. The resin table top is then painstakingly hand-polished until it is perfectly smooth to the touch.
The wood texture in each tree patch is one of a kind. The arrangement of the rings, the shape of the edge, and the colours make it impossible to produce another one of the same. Like a fingerprint, each piece has its own individual character and uniqueness.
The abstract shape of the wooden top means the viewer will have different association when admiring his tables. For some, perhaps the top will resemble a map, for others the same table will be associated with the bottom of the ocean, or with a picturesque landscape seen from the bird’s eye view.
