oak strip mirrors
These mirrors are both modular and variable; they are designed to work individually or in groups. They can be made to custom sizes and any colour combination. The frames shown here are constructed in solid oak however they can also be made in beech and ash. We plan on offering walnut, maple and cherry wood in the future. The wood is faced with hand painted 35 x 6 mm strips in various configurations.
The examples above show a post and lintel style. Historically deriving from ancient Greek architecture, this format has been used by artists Brice Marden and Imi Knoebel in many of their works.
The colours used for these mirrors are from the Farrow & Ball range, each one is painted in four different colours. Each frame has four split battens on the reverse therefore each individual unit can be rotated through 360 degrees for display in a portrait or landscape format. Additionally adjoining mirrors can slide horizontally so that they may touch each other or have a gap between.
These mirrors have limitless combinations: wood, colours, portrait or landscape format, number of units and their individual size can be made to order. They can also be displayed in conjunction with monochrome versions.
We can use paint from any other maker: Little Green has a fine set of greys in addition to their main colours. We also like the selection from the Paint & Paper Library and the chalky paint from Edward Bulmer. Should any of the panels become scuffed these suppliers sell sample pots for easy retouching.
