the Raven convex mirror

In Mirrors by Mark Evans

The Raven convex mirror is built on an oval frame that I lacquered black. The inner ring is lined with spheres of labradorite. The rays surrounding the frame are also labradorite intersperced with black jasper. The labradorite is specially interesting because of the flashes of gold and blue iridescence that occur when the light hits the mineral.

The Raven convex mirror is about 20 inches by 17 inches. It hangs in my studio pending being shipped to one of my showrooms.

Feathers from a raven

The common raven (Corvus corax) is a large all-black passerine bird. It is the most widely distributed of all corvids, found across the Northern Hemisphere. The raven is a very smart, playful, loudly vocal, determined bird who will eat anything.

The feathers can range from gray to iridescent black like the iridescence of labradorite.
