Once I made a Looking Glass

by Lisa Catherwood, January 28, 2016

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
