"Silver Filigree Vanity Mirror"
Yorktown, Virginia, USA
Artist Statement: This filigree mirror is handmade from rendered U.S. quarters. The quarters were melted into ingot form and then rolled into wire form and pulled to the appropriate sizes by hand. The frame was made first, and each decorative piece was handmade and added individually to the desired balance.
