Coatrack With Mirror – a handmade custom design

2013 September 3

Here’s a new one-of-a-kind wall mounted coatrack with mirror in carved and painted cherry, which I completed and shipped a couple weeks ago to a customer in Kansas. I designed this piece to fit a 32″ wide wall space.  The cherry is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified sustainably harvested.  The mirror glass is 1/4″ thick with a polished edge, and is offset from the wall by 3/4″, to create a shadow effect on the wall.  Since this was a custom design, I did sketches of a series of different design ideas, based on a previous sculptural wall hung coat rack I made, but for this one I added a mirror into the mix, on the customer’s request.  After reviewing my ideas, she then selected this design.
