Marzia Ali has continued to experiment with epoxy resin since 2016 as a hobbyist and is currently focusing on preserving living flowers. “After three months of experimenting during lockdown, I’ve finally added live flower preservation to my catalog.

I got commissions from architecture and interior design companies in the city for resin art,” she says, who makes beautiful little resin things.
