MEET THE ARTIST 

Founder image

Since graduating college in 2017, self- taught Laguna Beach based artist, Kayla Rae Gierut, had a vision to bridge her education in Environmental Science and her passion for art into one. It was during this time she stumbled across a form of fluid art using an epoxy resin (the same material used to glass surfboards).

Kayla has a goal to put a spin on what we normally consider “art” and create works that serve a function in the everyday home while attaining an affordable price. She is most known for her Grazing Boards - a must-have staple for every home entertainer. Each of these one-of-a-kind homewares are 100% handcrafted in Southern California.

Kayla pays tribute to her coastal roots by seeking all of her inspiration from her seaside environment . This often means honing in on techniques that have taken her years to closely emulate geologic rock formations or seascapes. Resin is an extremely difficult medium to work with as it is known for its challenges, however, Kayla describes herself as someone who is not intimidated by experimentation or getting a little messy. The medium’s unpredictability further encourages that no two works are the same and Kayla quite literally “pours” her heart out into each and every piece.
