A lovely lady called Cheryl wanted one of my pointy metal wall clocks in a custom colour, to suit her newly decorated front room. The original request was for the clock to match the colour of her cushions. I sourced a lovely Pinky, Purple (Magenta) colour, that Cheryl was really pleased with. Then Cheryl had an idea that she would like to commission me to make a mirror to fill the space above her new fireplace in the same colour as the clock. She gave me some ideas of what she was looking for in the design and mentioned several of my pieces of work that she liked and said she would like a variation of these designs, I then set to work.
We were unsure at first if we were going to use a real glass mirror for the commission as we didn't really like the idea of sending the glass through the post, we could see this being a recipe for a disaster, the end result of which being a very unhappy customer. I discussed my concerns with Cheryl and she understood the situation, so I was going to make the frame work only, and the mirror would be sourced from Cheryl's end to prevent any mishaps in the post. However, after a little research we were able to source what is known in the trade as an unbreakable mirror. This was the ideal solution to our problem and meant that I was able to complete the whole thing my end. When Cheryl received her completed commission she was over the moon with her matching mirror and clock. Many thanks to you Cheryl for commissioning me to make this piece for you.
