Karl Zahn, ‘Marquis Slab’, 2017, The Future Perfect

The Marquis Slab Mirror is the first in a new vernacular of polished brass mirror pieces by Karl Zahn. Beginning with strict geometric boundaries and guidelines, each mirror is handmade to order by a team of brass craftsmen. The parts are all hollow tubing, but appear to be solid and deceptively heavy. This gives the mirror a visually impressive mass when mounted. Although it has been polished to a mirror finish, slight ripples in the metal augment and distort our reflected world. The hand of the craftsman is thus revealed as the instrument of its fine geometric surfaces.

Series: Limited edition of 10.
