This elegant standing sculptural mirror is made from bronze and local granite.
The title 'Deep Space' symbolises the next frontier and our ongoing quest as humans to find something that is bigger than ourselves. Whether that be space travel or internal reflection. The greatest journeys of all are the quest to discover the unknown or the quest for happiness. In its vertical reaching for the skies and its unearthly textures, this piece reflects both these missions.
The piece is made from open sand-cast bronze and Paarl grey granite. The single bronze slab is cast and the centre area is machined to form a perfectly flat recess, leaving a frame that still embodies the raw open-cast texture. The machined area is then sanded and polished to a mirror-like finish. The bronze mirror is placed into the Granite block to stand upright.
