A mirror with a handmade frame seems to reflect things differently. It’s easy to imagine the maker, sitting quietly in his workshop nestled somewhere in the mountains of Peru. He wraps himself in alpaca fleece that his wife wove for him, to fight the chill that comes with an overcast sky and mountain air. Rocks peek through tall grassy hills-and while goats prance from rock to rock, the scrape of chisel against wood can be heard. This wood, from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified Amazonian timber, is handled with the same care his father used while carving sculptures for the village iglesia. And when the carving is complete, color is added using a non-toxic finish.

The maker saw himself in this mirror. And now it’s your turn to look. Reflect your own home in the glass with an overtone of something that has stayed with the glass... the spirit of Peru.
