ru ware variations
This is the first in a series of square, modular, multi-part works comprising mirrors and hand painted painted panels. They are all housed in hand finished white stained and lime wax ash tray frames.
The colours for this unique set were inspired by a painting by Brice Marden called
The Ru Ware Project
(2007 - 2012) based on the colours of rare ancient Chinese ceramics.
Whereas Marden's painting is in nine parts and is displayed in a horizontal line, this set has five units and can be displayed in varying numbers and combinations and changed when desired.
A single mirrored panel is shown juxtaposed with differing configurations of the painted ones. Here we chose to use the lovely chalky colours from the range by Edward Bulmer.
The mirror is 4mm thick and has polished edges. The face on the tray frames is only 5mm wide and each one has an integral split batten on the reverse for secure, flush hanging on the wall. They are also easy to reconfigure when desired.
Each unit is stamped and signed on the reverse.
We can accept commissions based on this design, the size, colours, frames and number of units are all open to variation. You will need allow around six weeks for your order to be completed.
Size of units shown: 390 x 390 x 33 mm
Weight per unit: mirror 1.5 kg; panels 1 kg.
Available in customised versions based on this design
Not suitable for areas with high condensation
This unique set has now been sold. We are working on new versions to the same dimensions but with stronger colours in acrylic paint and with additional mirrored squares.
The three part variation is shown with a work on paper by Willie Heron ARUA
