Liverpool, England-based artist Kate Chesters creates handmade wooden cutting boards featuring stunning resin art. Inspired by nature, each unique design captures the essence of natural landscapes. From ocean-like blues to cloud-like magenta swirls, Chesters uses a variety of resin hues that beautifully merge together to create vibrant fusions of color and pattern. The artist reveals, “I have always been fascinated and mesmerized by the sky and light, and it is my aim to create artworks that capture the awe-inspiring emotion that a dramatic landscape evokes.”

Taking several days to complete, Chesters creates her artisanal boards from a variety of natural, water-resistant woods. From the oil-like grain patterns of olive wood to the minimal, striped markings of bamboo wood, each rustic slab has its own unique properties and aesthetic. Before applying the non-toxic epoxy resin, Chesters first places a stretch of tape across the board to create a clean line and protect the rest of the wood with cling film. She then pours her colorful glazes onto the exposed areas, and watches as a chemical reaction causes the colors to mix together in abstract patterns. Once complete, each board must be left to dry for around 24-72 hours.

The artist reveals, “When I create my work I always have a plan in mind. I know what colors I will be using, what kind of shapes and patterns I will be creating, and the sort of mood that I am aiming for. However, the exact final result of how the board will look is, to a degree, out of my control.”

Once the resin has gone from sticky to smooth and shiny, the resulting surface is extremely versatile and hard-wearing. And with multiple shapes and sizes, Chesters’ creations can be used to chop and prepare food, serve bread and cheese, or just add contemporary flair to your kitchen!
