Archivolt Mirror

An archivolt is the moulding around and above the face of an arch or opening; the architectural term is applied especially to medieval buildings. They were a prominent feature in medieval design and can be seen in the masonry work surrounding entrances and windows in the architecture of that time - Aydon being an example. The mirror takes the shape of the archivolt in its entirety and has an iridescent colour tint as a nod to the stained glass windows that would often sit within these features.

Materials: Iridescent-tinted Mirror Glass, floor-standing

Designer: Lewis Power
