Product Details


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 forming a mirror with two hanging options. A piece that 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.

Option of being mounted vertically or horizontally. Supplied with fixings and hooks ready to be hung.

Finished with an oil wax.

Overall size – 70 x 42 x 11cm
Mirror – 42 x 22cm

Weight: 3 kg
Dimensions: 70 × 42 × 11 cm

The purple sprouts which give this mirror its anthropomorphic feel were originally destined to be supports for arm rests on 2 carver dining chairs. However, after some trials it was apparent that the purpleheart components didn’t have enough outward reach, thereby narrowing the potential space for a person to sit. Consequently, new supports were made and these pieces were put to one side and left to ruminate on their own for a several months. Given the time I had spent shaping and sanding them, I did not want to see them go to waste, so reimagined their purpose in life and incorporated them into a mirror design. Waste not, want not!
