The Black Ice convex mirror is part of a series I’m doing exploring the color black. The recycled frame was painted a shiny black then layers of Venetian glass rods, quartz crystal spheres and glass cabochons were attached. The results look like a fanciful piece of ice!
The Black Ice convex mirror is about 14 inches in diameter. It is in my studio pending being shipped to one of my showrooms.
Jewelry for walls!
Black ice, sometimes called clear ice, is a thin coating of glaze ice on a surface, especially on roads. The ice itself is not black, but visually transparent, allowing the often black road below to be seen through it. The typically low levels of noticeable ice pellets, snow, or sleet surrounding black ice means that areas of the ice are often practically invisible to drivers or people stepping on it. There is, thus, a risk of slippage and subsequent accident due to the unexpected loss of traction.
