Coronet Mirror

Coronet Convex Mirror

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.

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.
