the Loire convex mirror

In Mirrors by Mark Evans

The Loire convex mirror is a continuation of my series based on rivers, oceans and other bodies of water. Its always fascinating to see how varied the blues, greens and grays are when you really look.

The Loire convex mirror is thickly stacked with clear, teal, gray and cobalt Venetian glass rods. The “rays” of the mirror are recycled, rough glass beads from Africa. I glazed them with clear resin to make them gem-like.

The Loire convex mirror hangs in my studio pending being shipped to one of my showrooms.

It measures about 13.5 inches in diameter.

Jewelry for Walls!

The Loire convex mirror is inspired by the Loire river in France. The beauty of this rather modest river is immensely enhanced by the numerous chateaux built on its banks and environs. The glory of renaissance France can be seen here.

Chateau d`Amboise, France. This royal castle is located in Amboise in the Loire Valley, was built in the 15th century.
