the Aegean convex mirror

In Mirrors by Mark Evans

The Aegean convex mirror started life as a well shaped hard plastic(!) frame that I back-filled with clear resin to give heft and solidity. After lacquering it a deep blue I stacked three shades of blue Venetian glass rods into the crevices of the frame.

I attached lapiz-lazuli and quartz rock crystal spheres to the tips of the rays. Blue glass cabochons encase a second frame around the mirror.

The Aegean convex mirror is about 12.5 inches in diameter. It hangs in my studio pending being shipped to one of my showrooms.

The Aegean Sea is located between Greece and Turkey. It figures significantly in Greek mythology. The origin of the name comes from the Greek king Aegeus. He was king of Athens and the father of the legendary Theseus. Aegeus drowned himself in the sea when he mistakenly believed his son to be dead. The sea was thereafter called the Aegean.
