"Miroir aux Alouttes"

The term refers to traps used to catch larks. They had tiny mirrors on them, which reflect the light of the sun - to attract the birds that like "shiny things!"

 

  • On thick canvas. 6x6x 1.5" Each.
  • Created one at a time, these pieces are made with found objects. Each canvas is painted and decorated with gold foil and a variety of pieces.
  • A center piece is placed, and then the canvas is embellished with hand cut pieces of junk mail, holiday cards, etc. In addition, jewels, wood, toys, etc. are added.
  • They are not symetrical as this is a hand made piece of art. The edges are finished with one of many kinds of ribbon, glued and lacquered.
  • Each piece has mirrors - round, tiny squares or larger ones. All of them include gold leafing and reflective materials.
  • All of the canvases are coated several times with a glossy medium; some have glitter, some are irridescent, some contain glass beads or other shiny lacquers. 
  • Each is a completely unique piece! I purposely photograph them WITH glare to indicate how shiny these are!
  • Price: $125 Each. Discounts for multiple purchases.
