Mirrors

When I designed this mirror I wanted to experiment with suspending a very rectilinear frame inside a more freeform supporting structure. It wasn’t until I had finished the design that I noticed its similarity to an oriental gateway. So, is it the gateway “through the looking glass” or is it the gateway to the other side of vanity?

I decided to have some fun with this mirror. By curving the inside edges of the frame asymmetrically, I created a “semi-rectilinear” mirror surface that is at an angle to the frame. My original intent was that the mirror would be mounted so that the mirror is “square” with the frame at an angle, but after thinking about it for a while, and spending some time “living” with the mirror, I decided to add a second mount so that the mirror can also be mounted with the frame “square” and the mirror at an angle. That means that you can have either the mirror or the frame “on the level”!
