Fallen Leaves | Mirrors
Hand carved wood finished with gold and copper leaf in gradients tones with high gloss varnish.
This creation will be released in four versions representing the four seasons. Other options are available under request.
The wind passage among the branches of five trees by a lake caused the spinning fall of five leaves of different shapes. Fallen Leaves were removed from the water still dotted with small drops like real mirrors eager to reflect the eyes of two young lovers and to tell a paragraph of their love story.
The natural aging revealed by the broken tips of these leaves is created by the hand carved structure with the wisdom of master craftsmen, whose hands give life to the details of the natural drawings, and where the gradients in warm tones of gold and copper leaf finish in high gloss varnish extol the reflection of water between brushstrokes coming from the spectacular palette of autumnal colors.
Nothing ends. Even at the end of life, leaves with beautiful burned and aged edges by the passing of the seasons, are a paradox with more vivid colors than ever, revealing memories that inspire the creation of pieces where that fleeting image will remain intact as if we were allowed to stop the time.
Bringing these pieces from the richest season of the year to the comfort of the interior, the orientation of the five mirrors is free as if we photographed the leaves in free fall, creating many combinations possibilities
