bloomsbury butterfly mirror

This mixed media mirror has a very retro feel - a perfect little piece for creating a pretty vignette in your bedroom, library, studio or anywhere that needs a little detail.


I hand cut the mirror, copperfoil, solder and patina the glass to give an aged vintage look to it. The body of the butterfly is a gorgeous art glass in wispy purple and ochre greens. I've felted the back of the mirror for protection of the mirror foil and signed the art glass body.


It is decorated in felt flowers of mauve, pale blue and teal / turquoise, which I hand cut, and beaded. The felt flowers embellish little metal antiqued copper branches which climb up one side of the mirror to a bright green satin ribbon. Where the ribbon and branches meet a blue lucite and green glass bellflower hangs.


glass measures approx. 15 cm x 10cm (6 inches x 4 inches)
