The above pieces incorporate mirrors. I started making smaller tiles in 1995 and was presented with the problem of mirrors through a commissioned piece several years ago. The idea of mirrors both intrigued and scared me. A mirror image tends to dominate and be a strong focus. I wanted to frustrate that; to find a way to incorporate the mirrors and thus the viewers into the piece; to pull their eyes away from their own reflection into the border or to the surface of the glass, back to their reflection and contemplation on how their image becomes part of the piece.
