Reflected painting, "Howling Hat" by Linda Hickerson-Hofheinz

Metal window frame, cum mirror, from an 1820's-1850's German brick factory.

The reflected bed is a Stickley reproduction of a Harvey Ellis design.

We have been searching for the perfect mirror for our bedroom at The Bunny Bungalow and we finally found it. I saw a mirror on Installations Antiques' website that looked promising but when we walked through their door, Tall Husband saw this one. We both knew immediately that this was "the one." The patina from the elements and age give it just the character we love. It's an old metal window frame from a German brick factory, around 1820's to 1850's, that Jur of Installations Antiques transformed into a mirror. His work is always artistically and functionally exquisite, with just enough edginess to make each piece interesting. The manner in which the mirror fractures images imbues it with an air of mystery.
