TRADITIONAL IRON DECORATIVE MIRROR FRAME

metal wall art

THIS RUSTIC IRON DECORATIVE MIRROR CONVEYS A CERTAIN VIEW OF BOLD ORNAMENTAL EXPRESSION. A WORN WEATHERED APPEARANCE GIVES THE PIECE A SLIGHT ANTIQUE QUALITY, AN ESCAPE FROM THE MODERN CLEAN-CUT CHARACTERISTICS OF THE NEW AGE. ORIGINAL ORNAMENTAL DESIGN FOR THE BORDER ELEMENTS, MIXING GEOMETRIC SHAPES WITH FLORAL OVERGROWTH WAS A WAY OF SYMBOLIZING THE DOMINATING FORCE OF NATURE OVER MODERNISM.

BORDER DETAIL

ORNAMENTAL ART

THE INITIAL FRAME WORK WAS AT FIRST A VERY SIMPLE GEOMETRIC STRUCTURE. TO ADD A LITTLE BOTANICAL FEEL TO THIS PIECE A CENTER FLOWER AND WINGED SCROLLS WERE INTRODUCED, I THINK THEY BRING SOME SUPPLEMENTARY BEAUTY TO THE DESIGN.

FOR THE WEATHERING FINISH THREE DIFFERENT COLORS WERE USED TO CREATE AN OLD WORN OUT LOOK, CHINESE RED, GOLD, AND FLAT BLACK. AFTER THE BLACK WAS APPLIED A ROUGH SANDING WAS PERFORMED SO THE UNDERLYING COLORS WOULD SHOW THROUGH, THEN IT WAS SEALED IN A SATIN LACQUER FINISH FOR PROTECTION.

SIZE..36 INCHES X 20 1/4 INCHES
