Part blackened ash, brass plated steel and part glass, the Solis Mirror references the horizon, the rising sun, and your reflection among it all. A brass circle stands an inch behind the oblong mirror as if hovering behind. The mirror's glass ends abruptly when a shallow shelf strikes through, defining where light and dark collide. Below the shelf, a blackened ash half-circle acts as a cast shadow of the mirror of itself. The Solis Mirror was inspired by the sunsets that peak through the mountains and over the lakes in the Eastern Townships, where the studio is. The Solis Mirror aims to bring that warmth into the home, with its brass halo rising above the mirror.
Tall mirrors are full size pieces, both taller and wider, in which one’s reflection can be seen head to toe.
