The Archduchess convex mirror is a small but potent example of what I do. The classic sunburst frame was gilded then layered with yellow, amber and gold Venetian glass rods. The tips of each ray has a quartz crystal sphere that has had the back half gold-leafed, giving each one a concave depth.
This mirror is about 10.75 inches in diameter. It is currently in my studio waiting to be shipped to one of my showrooms. If you are interested contact me directly.
