the Perseus Convex Mirror

In All, Mirrors by Mark Evans

 

The Perseus convex mirror is made like a piece of jewelry.  Thin rods of Venetian glass are stacked to create depth and shimmer.  I used gold, straw and warm gray glass.  Also featured are bronze glass faceted beads that shoot shards of light.  I used golden tiger eye to complete the look.

The Perseus convex mirror is around 11.25 inches in diameter and is going to be placed in the Ainsworth-Noah showroom in Atlanta.

Jewelry for walls!

The Perseus mirror is named after the mythical demi-god Perseus. He was the slayer of the dreaded Medusa and the hero of the princess Andromeda.
