While this design recalls work on 17th Stuart panels, it is innovative in its execution and use of materials.
Here perhaps you can see the glint of that precisely laid metallic mesh. To appreciate the dedication of work in this piece you have to look close at the image below to see that the linen has been given an extra weft of shaded blue thread in the background to the coiled dolphin and other mermaids on the mirror side of the piece. I would love to show you more, but I know that Amy is planning a special class to teach the making of this mirror. Anyone joining the class will create an object the like of which people like me can only dream about!
