Mosaic Mirror ready to reflect the Midwinter Light

20 Dec

Creating a Mosaic Mirror from broken mirrors has been a work in progress for the past few weeks.
it was finally completed this morning!

Mirrors reflect light, bouncing it around rooms where light is at a premium.

The preparations for Christmas continues. Now that the mirror is finished, time to move onto finishing the firebreast wall around the mirror. I am going to paint it a bright colour…well, whatever is the brightest from what I have in leftovers out in the shed.

The mirror really comes into it’s own once the candles are lit on the mantlepiece. The candlelight is reflected, creating a visual warmth in the room, even without the stove being lit!

Candlelight is restive and calm.

Enjoy the midwinter light tomorrow…

    What an interesting and unique piece, and it’s so ‘sparkly’ and festive with the candles burning in front of it!

      And the cost being ‘zero,’ is particularly appealing to me…now to think of another project!
      Happy Solstice,

    A wonderful completion to the project, and should surely meet Missy’s approval!
