Meet the Resin8er: Julian Szmania

Welcome to Week 5 of Meet the Resin8er!

We are showcasing the work of some of our amazing customers that have inspired us, and through a ‘virtual interview’ we have delved into their journey so far with resin – enjoy!

This week’s Resin8er is Julian Szmania and we would like say a huge thank you to Julian for sharing his amazing work with us.

Please tell us a little about your background.

My Name is Julian Szmania, I am 34 years old and I am living in Aachen / Germany. I got my certificate of apprenticeship as a carpenter in 2012.

How did you get into resin? How long have you been using resin?

I started to play around with resin in 2017 and built some river-tables just for fun.  When many of my friends and family told me that they thought I could sell this table, I started a small business.


Where do you make your creations – do you have a studio?

 I have rented a workshop where I can create my river-tables.

What inspires your work?

I get inspired from the beautiful nature around my hometown but also from the beautiful national parks of the USA where I have some relatives.



What is your favourite Resin8 product? 

I totally love your colour pigments. One of my favourites is Kingfisher’

Do you sell your work? Where can we see your work?

I sell my work using Facebook and my Instagram Account, and on my website.


We hope you have been inspired by Julian’s amazing work and are enjoying this series of Meet the Resin8er. Look out for next week’s blog, when we will be introducing Lisanne Rose.
