MIRRORS

About this project

I often create a sense of perspective and depth in my mirrors by narrowing the gap between parallel lines of all thicknesses and I alternate between choosing veneers in bold colour contrasts or subtle colour combinations in geometric designs. Freestanding mirrors stand in hardwood supports with angled slots.
