When I was a kid, I loved The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. The drama was pretty good, but my favorite thing was the Wardrobe. The whole idea of stepping through a secret door to another world was intriguing and delightful. And I’ll admit, the idea intrigues me to this day. I still check closets for secret doors. (Sorry to report, none yet.) That’s why I’m so interested in creating portals to the beyond, like this one: Swirls of cobalt and teal promise the adventure of another place. Another time. The metallic silver throws reflections of yourself, just on the other side, looking back. It’s like you can see the shape of yourself in another dimension waiving, “C’mon over, it’s fantastic here.” This piece is 22″ in diameter. It’s permanently framed in a coordinating silver-toned frame. Available via ArtfulHome.

This custom commission was for a builder/designer that specializes in rehabbing historical homes. Where most designers would have torn down the structure to build a cape cod, this designer chose to take on the challenge of renovating and showcasing how the home could fit in to the neighborhood. The designer was faced with the restoration and redesign of a 1945 midcentury modern/Frank Lloyd Wright prairie house. His aim was to keep the architecture in keeping with the home’s roots, while creating a modern and flowing interior. When he came to me to create the centerpiece of the living area, we discussed many concepts. In the end, we settled on the idea of creating a flowing piece that references the neighborhood’s proximity to the Connecticut River and Long Island Sound. We should bronze metallic highlights on the side edges of the triptych to flow into the space that was finished in a color called Natural Linen. The finished piece is the culmination of two months worth of studio work. The piece is composed of multiple layers …

The client that commissioned this vessel was interested in creating a piece that could be displayed upright in a easel. She had collected a sizeable amethyst crystal cluster and wanted something special that would compliment it. We discussed several options, and settled on a 12″ shallow bowl that would fit perfectly in her dark wood shelving unit. The client left this five-star review: The shelving above our wet bar needed an object of art. I wanted something unique and in a medium we didn’t already have throughout the house. I came across Mira’s shop and knew immediately that one of her exquisite glass bowls would make a perfect addition to our home. I contacted Mira to request a commission. I sent the ideal diameter and color pallet with photos of the intended display location. Mira sent me renderings, I chose one, and she transformed it into a stunning bowl.
