the Odessa convex mirror

In Mirrors by Mark Evans

The Odessa convex mirror is part of a series of mirrors where I explore the colors of black. The inner frame is embellished with a combination of black jet balls and glass pearlized spheres. Black glass cabochons circle the mirror itself. The rays are a composed of labradorite obelisks and rays made of porcelain orbs with sardonix and onyx spheres.

The Odessa mirror is about 16 inches in diameter. It is in my studio until it is shipped to one of my showrooms.

Jewelry for walls!

Odessa is a warm water port city on the Black Sea in the embattled southern Ukraine. Odessa was founded by decree by Catherine the Great in 1795. It established the Russian empire on the strategically important Black Sea. It’s known for its beaches and 19th-century architecture, including the Odessa Opera and Ballet Theater. The monumental Potemkin Stairs, immortalized in “The Battleship Potemkin,” lead down to the waterfront with its Vorontsov Lighthouse. Running parallel to the water, the grand Primorsky Boulevard is a popular promenade lined with mansions and monuments.

The dedication to the monument for Catherine the Great in Odessa in 1900.
Battleship Potemkin, is a 1925 Soviet silent drama film. Directed and co-written by Sergei Eisenstein, it presents a dramatization of the mutiny that occurred in 1905 when the crew of the Russian battleship Potemkin rebelled against its officers. The horrifying scene of the massacre on the Odessa steps was actually filmed on location.
