Turquoise Taffy Mirror – A Carved Wood, Contemporary Wall Mirror

2013 December 14
by David

Here’s the second custom wall mirror from a grouping of four handmade mirrors in bright retro colors that I completed and sold recently.  This one is carved Vermont sugar maple with turquoise paint.  The maple I used for this mirror is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified sustainably harvested.  I can make these contemporary mirrors in custom sizes and custom colors.  This one is an homage to late 1950’s design.  1958.  It reminds me of my grandparent’s turquoise kitchen table and chairs and modern ceiling lamp, which they bought back then.

I will post the other mirrors from the group of four in the next few blog posts, so stay tuned…
