Description Technical Specs Extended Information
This is the second in a series of mirrors I am working on. I'm not actually sure what the inspiration was. I see it as a playful comment on the compact or a pair of pince nez glasses....with the eyes already attached. It doesn't, however, close all the way. It wouldn't anyway because the fishtail is wider than the rest of the frame. It does sit nicely on a table at a variety of angles.

The frame is made from 1/2" square iron bar that I forged hot into the scrolls. The hinge is made from some iron strap and tubing. The eyes are hammered cold in some aluminum sheet that I have far too much of. They start out flat and become three dimensional with work. I have been trying to figure out what to do with my aluminum sheet scrap for several years and repousse seem to be what best suits it for now.

Please drop me a note if you have any questions. I will, of course, respond as quickly as I can.
