This unique mirror was inspired by the plant drawings of the American artist Ellsworth Kelly (1923 – 2015). The frame is handmade in solid black walnut with painted wood inserts.
It has four original pencil drawings in the top section. These drawings are free transcriptions, based on Kelly’s work, on coloured Fabriano acid-free paper.
The stripes on the top and bottom panel are painted by hand using colours from Farrow and Ball.
for the top, with the addition of
on the base.
Each plant drawing has its own small glazed panel using museum grade glass with green spacers made from 100% cotton rag card. The spacers prevent the glass from touching the paper which ensures the drawings will not be damaged over time.

The mirror frame is fitted with an integral split batten for secure, flush wall mounting.
This mirror is stamped, signed and dated on the reverse.
