Handmade Figurative Wall-Mounted Glazed Ceramic Mirror, Mexico, 1980s
A humorous and expressive handmade wall-mounted mirror in glazed ceramic, made in Mexico, circa 1980. Lovely human details and idiosyncrasies throughout the piece carry with them the aura of an object made by man and not machine. A curious, intimate discovery begins the moment your eyes settle on the frame, as you see your reflection on the glass, you also feel the emotional reflection of the maker in each pinch, prod, swirl, whirl, and wiggle of the clay before you. The piece has a quality of constant evolution, guided by intuition, still moving and changing, growing and decaying--it is, as we are, never still, never geometrically-oriented, always imperfect, always unfolding--human, all too human.
