This is a convex mirror created from an old funky round frame I found at a Paris flea market. It sat around for years before I could figure out where to take it.
I refinished the frame and gilded it. I then made a silicone mold from cone shaped carved soapstone and made the spikes that flare out from the frame. Each is topped with an acrylic sphere.
I was inspired by the old, grand movie palace in San Francisco named the Coronet. Its where I first saw Star Wars and the theater had a modernist Camelot vibe that I thought was beautiful. Unfortunately the theater was torn down and has been replaced with a retirement community. So I named this mirror in tribute to the swooping, sputnik, knight-and-fair-lady theater that stood there.
The mirror measures about 29 inches in diameter.
