Elm Timber Mirror


Having made a template to recreate some Barge Boards for a Victorian House Dormer Window, and recollecting that over 20yrs prior to this I had stored some reclaimed Elm. The Elm used to rebuild a water wheel on an old flour mill Situated in the Lorton Vale, in the Lake District. I was Inspired to combine the two to create this lovely mirror. Not only will this look great on any wall, but it includes the owner in a story connecting a 17century flour mill with a Victorian Town house. Some pictures of the flour mill and it’s working can be seen in the joinery section.

All of my pieces are created from the ground up with care, love and attention to detail. I like to think of it as not work, but a passion! Akin to that of any artist or sculptor. Your purchase therefore becomes not only a business transaction, but a bond we share for our love of design, nature and our environment that translates to functionality.

Wabi Sabi, ”perfect imperfection”, a Japanese phrase that epitomises this entire collection. Please do take the time to consider this and it’s concept carefully before your purchase.

Timber generally is a live organic medium. In short it can be unpredictable. After a lifetime of avoiding splits, cracks and knots in my work, I now delight in their beauty and characteristics. Likewise please accept that this piece may change in various ways overtime. Ultimately however it is, by design, not built to be perfect. It is it’s imperfections that make it to both you the consumer, and me, it’s creator – Perfect!
