Once I made a Looking Glass

Light and delight, the mirrors of dreams, these were an exciting phase in my work some years ago and actually many more than one. I really enjoyed using leading and glass paints and there was an element of collage in that there were glass beads and wires and embedded images in many of them. I made about 60 and now only have about 4 left. If anyone is interested in commissioning a looking glass do let me know, I am happy to work with you to make the best possible for the occasion, they do make great wedding presents. All the designs were and are entirely original.

“The world is a looking glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion; and so let all young persons take their choice.”
? William Makepeace Thackeray, Vanity Fair
