Purple-Sprouting Mirror

Bertram Whitford > Portfolio > Mirrors > Purple-Sprouting Mirror

If mirrors played by the rules they would all follow a sensible geometric form. Thankfully some dare to sprout individuality and answer to no-one.

This, obviously, is a one-off piece. Purpleheart and sycamore combine to strong effect to give a mirror that has two hanging options and will enliven most hallways, prompting comment from all but the most world-weary of guests. 

A fine purpleheart stringing surrounds the mirror’s frame, which projects from the wall on its finely-shaped purple protuberances. 

Finished with an oil wax.
