Ascension Convex Mirror

Ascension Convex Mirror Ascension Mirror Detail

My new convex mirror that I’ve named Ascension.  The wood frame itself is hand turned wood and lacquered black.  I silver leafed the interior curve and embellished it with small crystal resin cones of various sizes.  Of course, I made the cones. Some are tipped with a bit of glass. The convex mirror is a true half dome which reflects the cones in a wonderful way.

The final piece reminds me of dahlias or chrysanthemums in full bloom. Or the burst of a monstrance or firework.

About trompehalf

I am an artist with a fascination with history. Not battles per se, but the culture and personalities that shape history. Gossip is good too.
