The Shale mirror has a distinct texture carved across the frames surface that seems to reach beyond it's limits. The solid ash surface is scored vertically across the grain, and a drawing is carved into it half by machine, half by hand, replicating the textures of a crumbling cliff's facade. The Shale Mirror is as striking from afar as from up close. Patterns within the carving and the wood's grain create optical illusions depending on the lights orientation, bringing the serenity of the outdoors into the home. Slight variations will occur from piece to piece as the texture upon the surface is hand carved, making each piece unique. This item comes professionally packed and crated.
