Any sales enquiries, please look at the Lunartique site. I've got lots of other mirrors and styles, not shown here.
If you take an old jet engine apart (as you do) you'll have a large pile of carefully-machined stainless steel rings. I've used some of these to make mirrors, in a cyberpunk / industrial style.
Small mirror - 15" diameter. Stainless steel
From the front, the frame of this style is near-invisible. From the side it's a ring of polished diagonal steel stripes.
This one is much bigger, and visually more imposing. The frame is deep, with a 2" frame in front of a recessed glass.
Material is solid titanium, with a heat-blued finish. Colours are a random swirl of blues and purples.
It's bigger than the other mirrors, Eastern European (I think it's from a Mig-29).
Frame 20" diameter. Mirror 19". Heat-blued titanium
How cyberpunk can one get? All of these mirrors are made from scrap jet aircraft engines. Some of Rolls-Royce's finest engineering in stainless steel and titanium. The orignal price of these things doesn't bear thinking about - now you can hang them on the bathroom wall.
All of these mirrors are hand-made from genuine recycled scrap. I make them when I can, so it depends on the number of aircraft I can get hold of
The metalwork is hand-polished and suitable for use in bathrooms. The lighter mirrors can just hang on a picture hook, the heavier ones ought to be screwed to a wall (all fittings supplied).
These are from end of the engine's compressor, so they have a ring of curved fan blades. My idea is to use them as illuminated make-up mirrors, with a ring of illuminated glass around a central miror.
Mirror is 14" diameter, frame is 18" overall. Stainless steel
news: Still a few issues with lighting to sort out.
