This project started as a material research on alternative solutions for glass. The outcome is an optical mirror made out of porcelain, coated with a layer of platinum.
Throughout the history humans used various kinds of reflective surfaces to develop complex tools or just to be able to see themselves. The materials changed over the centuries from obsidian to polished copper, tin, gold to mercury and silver and finally aluminum on glass. Looking at the symbolism of mirrors and the purpose they had in different cultures, gave this project a new push into the making of a new mirror.
Currently this project is being evaluated from different international companies.
