WINKS Mini Hinged Eye Mirrors - Lead Free Monochromatic Blue (Discounts/Seconds)
Discounts/Seconds: There is a texture running through the upper left charcoal piece of glass on the eyelid side of the design that came from the manufacturer, but that I wish I'd avoided when I cut that piece out. Just a small blemish that I want to account for with a slight discount.
WINKS ;-) - Miniature versions of the "You Don't Have To Look If You Don't Want To" hinged eye + mirror design in an assortment of colorways! Display them on a vanity or shelf, or include a note at check-out if you'd like hardware added to be able to hang your piece on the wall.
Each piece is made from a combination of fused pupils and irises fired in my home studio, with complementary background and eyelid glasses-- this one features a charcoal and periwinkle blue checkered background, and robin's egg blue outer eyelid and pupil. When the piece is closed, it displays a simplified closed eye design with a layered eyelid and wire eyelash details. When opened, it displays the full, open eye design across from a mirrored half.
These functional designs are built from all-lead free metals (lead free solder, brass framing, and tinned brass or copper hinge tubing). Each half measures just under 5.5" square, with a full width of around 10.75" when open. Be aware, the wirework eyelashes on the front of the piece prevents it from laying fully flush on a flat surface or against the wall. Handle with care to prevent scratching of your surfaces. All connecting framing corners have been sanded to a smooth finish. Mirrored glass has been spray sealed to prevent discoloration, and is backed with black felt for added protection and finish.
Glass is a slightly fickle photography subject, so note that colors and textures may appear slightly different in person than they do in the pictures.
