Dark Lichen Mirror by London-based industrial artist Charlotte Kingsnorth. Inspired by growth and form in nature, this decorative mirror is an abstract feature piece, launched during London Craft Week in 2019. This particular mirror explores a darker and deeper patination process, with the signature lichen-like blooms around the perimeter leaving the centre as a functional, reflective surface.

Each piece in this collection showcases a new technique inspired by organic lichen fungi. Layers of chemicals and pigments have been applied to heated bronze to create a rich and expressive surface. The resulting patina is rich in colour and natural mark making.
