Handcrafted frame in cast brass with aged effect finished in gloss varnish.

After creating the bookcase Into the Woods to represent a long walk through the Swedish woods towards the top a mountain, Joana Santos Barbosa conceived the mirror Tuna Kvarn to show what she saw while reaching the top.

The irregular forms of the frozen lake, created by a simple mirror, are as faithful to reality as the distant memory allowed. The complexity of thick grove around the lake collects 88 pieces in cast brass, each one presented as a single tree, in a handcrafted detailed process of adaptation and connection between the pieces. To complete the intention, the aged effect adds the finishing touch to the contrast between the shadows and the lit treetops seen from above.

The rectangular shape of the mirror frame allows the viewer to look at the landscape directly from the camera's viewfinder to recover the exact moment that Joana didn’t get the chance to photograph.
