A mirror should fulfil William Morris’s criteria “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful”.
Emma offers two very different and distinct styles
The Venetian range of mirrors are made using traditional techniques and high quality materials. Referencing Art Deco, but with a contemporary feel to them, the three dimensional construction creates a myriad of reflective surfaces. The designs incorporate richly coloured glass, decorative wire work and can be as plain or ornate as desired. She works directly with clients in order to create mirrors to suit their individual requirements.
Recently Emma has been drawn to working with vintage mirrors, which have qualities to them that only age can bring. The idea is to create a piece of work that allows the mirror to be enjoyed in an unconventional way. The technique she uses to remove the silvering is an unpredictable process. So each mirror, after the photomontage which has been specifically designed for that piece is in place and the frame has been constructed, is unique.
