Resined Art Blocks
Reclaimed hardwood blocks, lovingly restored and given a new lease of life as beautiful stand alone artworks for a shelf, mantle or side table. They are 100% handmade by carefully mounting limited edition prints of Maria Harding’s original paintings onto the blocks and varnished with a thick coat of hard wearing glossy resin, giving them a lustrous glass-like shine, some designs also have a sprinkling of fine glitter to give them a touch of sparkle!
I collaborate with a local builder here in the Blue Mountains, who supplies the timber blocks for me. We use recycled Blackbutt – a beautiful hardwood that is a native Australian large eucalyptus species.
As far as I know, I am the only artist that makes art blocks like these, so they are pretty special and unique!

“I absolutely adore my dreamscape artblock, it sits on my desk at work, and every time I look at it, I feel happy and inspired - I love the beautiful colours and dreamy scene. Maria, you are such a talented artist, thank you for creating this beautiful piece which I will treasure forever.”

“When I saw Maria’s artblocks at the Blue Mountains Christmas market, I fell in love instantly and bought a black cockatoo for my mum and couldn’t resist buying the glitterbird for myself too! My mum LOVED hers and told me it is the best present she has ever received, and I also love my glitterbird which sits proudly on a little shelf in the kitchen. Thank you Maria!”
