(TMU) — When two talented, creative people join forces amazing things tend to happen as in the case of artist and graphic designer Rivka Wilkins and woodworker Jared Davis.

Rivka creates resin art as a hobby in her free time. Like all works of art, each piece is unique and takes a fair amount of time to complete.

“I stumbled upon fluid art, which led to resin. I love this form of art because it forces me to let go of control. I constantly find inspiration in the world around me but especially in space, the sky and the flow of water,” she explains on Instagram.

As an engineer, Jared’s passion for working with wood started as a hobby while he was a student in college—from there he turned his passion into a successful business.

‘’I am very picky and meticulous when it comes to my wood and the way I do and construct things and there is nothing I want more than to be known for my quality of work and my attention to detail and I can thank my father for that,’’ he writes on his Etsy page.

The two first worked together to create this stunning ocean wave table using layers of resin on a reclaimed walnut wood slab.

For Jared, it starts with finding the perfect live edge on all starts with Davis finding the perfect live edge slab of wood.

“I cut them and sand them to length and ship to Rivka. Then she works her resin magic and layers her waves on the top surface of the table. Then she ships it back to me where I sand and finish all the edges, the back, and the remaining strip on the top of the slab that is not covered by her waves. And then I measure and order the legs for it and assemble it!” he explained in an interview with Bored Panda.

According to Jared, their partnership began when they collaborated on a giveaway to celebrate his Instagram reached 40k followers. Rivka created the ocean waves on the bench which was given away to a very lucky follower.

Of their first collaboration, Jared said, ‘’It went so well that we decided to be partners and start building more of them!”

The combination of their creative talents definitely resulted in an amazing final piece of art and we hope to see many more of their creations in future.

Rivka’s unique resin art is available to order on her Etsy page. For more information follow her on Instagram. Jared’s stunning woodwork is also available on his Etsy page and you can check him out on Instagram.
