It's not your typical mirror. This unique frame was created by UK artist Malcolm Lewis. He is known for designing incredible handmade pieces of furniture and interior features. All Malcolm's designs are completely bespoke, no two pieces are the same.
For this piece, Malcolm wanted to create a new look; to craft something in a way that he had never attempted before.
While searching for inspiration Malcolm came across a YouTube video showing LINE-X being sprayed onto a work van. That was it - a versatile surface coating that could give his design a curious and distinctive finish. Malcolm reached out to his local LINE-X shop in Darlington, UK to see if they would be willing to experiment coating his wooden frames. LINE-X owner Mike Jemmett was happy to assist.
effect was like lava,” said Malcolm. Loving the faux-lava frame, Malcolm
created a limited-edition series of Volcanic Lava Oak Mirrors.
The frames are on display at the Biscuit Factory Gallery, the UK’s largest independent contemporary art, craft and design gallery located in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. http://www.thebiscuitfactory.c...
