Hand drawn glass, water gilded in pure silver, backed with ebonised birch veneer and framed in oxidised lead, finished with natural wax. Crafted to the highest standards by our skilled artisan in Scotland. The inherent delicacy of these materials allow small disparities to be subtly transferred by the craftsmen during individual stages of the making process, resulting in unique pieces with a rich narrative that will slowly evolve their patina over many years.
It’s thought that mans first conscious use of the mirror image utilised shallow vessels of water, Perlucio evokes this lost quality, employing centuries old methods of working traditional materials to provide a visual experience, challenging our awareness of our environment and our perception of it. From a distance reflections appear distorted and mysteriously out of focus, refracted light creates the shimmer you find looking at rippled water. While persons moving through the frame do so with a serene fluidity and reality takes on an ethereal peculiarity. As you come closer your reflection becomes more regular.
