Once Upon A Time Hypnos Mirror | Mirror

Mark Sturkenboom's Cyrstals Overgrown series takes us to dreamland. Aptly called Once Upon A Time, this line of mirrors are embodiments of human experiences--to sleep and to dream. It transports us back to our memories, an emotional journey of trials and triumphs, a reminder of our personality, and an affirmation of our bieng.

Once Upon A Time takes a sophisticated approach to mirrors through the use of sculpted stainless steel exquisitely done in mirror finish. The faceted edges create an elegant three-dimensional frame. A starck reminder to bygone days, natural grown crystals slowly carves its way in, provoking our values.

Mark succeeds in challenging this narrative just as he challenges manufacturing, as it is based one processes which derives the same output. Instead, he espouses the material, its character, idiosyncracies, background and emotions. Thus, provoking ones concept of being desolate.
