Casiopea

CASIOPEA

The first thing we can appreciate when we see this mirror is its rounded triangular shape with a tendency to become an ellipse. This concept is repeated concentrically, producing an elliptical-kinetic effect that portrays (like an idealized caricature) the kinetics of stellar orbits.

Despite the apparent two-dimensionality of its three rings, the section differences in its profiles are of special interest, since they vary three-dimensionally, which increases the dynamism of their curves.

Cassiopeia, a mirror drawn with stardust but made of solid wood.
