Seal Harbor, ME
We are a husband and wife team who together create decorative mirrors using images from the natural world, illuminated books, art history and architecture. While our materials and techniques are traditional and straightforwardly serious, our aim is whimsical and fun. Our mirrors reflect both surfaces and what lies beneath. We have been collaborating in this work for over twenty years, yet continue to explore and develop new images and techniques. Our materials are wood, wood products, animal glue and whiting for gesso, gold leaf gilder's clay and egg tempera paint. Our techniques include carving, punching, burnishing and painting.
