Colour: Bronze, antique, regular mirror and copper inlay.
I often wonder what it would have been like before the ready availability of mirrors. How startling it must have been to see oneself for the first time. And, no doubt, the beginning of a long and rich tradition of sizing up ones looks. A mirror in the home is an important tool for literally reflecting oneself as well as the light and space it inhabits. But, I like the deeper idea of reflecting on the self, a reflection of not just our flesh and blood, but also of our souls. Who am I? What do I value? To be able to look through your eyes and reflect on your soul is powerful – and necessary.
