Ascension Convex Mirror

In Mirrors by Mark Evans

My new convex mirror that I’ve named Ascension. The wood frame itself is hand-turned and lacquered black. I silver leafed the interior curve and embellished it with small crystal resin cones of various sizes. Of course, I made the cones. Some are tipped with a bit of glass. The convex mirror is a true half-dome, which reflects the cones in a wonderful way.

The final piece reminds me of dahlias or chrysanthemums in full bloom. Or the burst of a monstrance or firework.
