Modern Technology: Respected Craftsmanship
Before manufacturing begins, each piece of wood is carefully selected for its quality and character. Measures are taken to ensure the wood has been correctly dried, to prevent flaws.
The mirror is crafted from several equally sized sections of wood to minimize waste. Once glued together, a CNC router machine transforms the blocks into the eloquent shape you see before you.
The wood is then sanded by hand to remove any last splinters and bumps before a natural oil is applied to protect it from the elements, while preserving as natural a finished as possible.
Finally, the glass, which is sourced locally, is inserted by hand and the entire piece is given a once over to make sure that it lives up to our high standards of craftsmanship and quality.
