Today， not for the first time， we mistook an artwork for a household object –； a mirror actually. We saw this work by Winston Roeth at YouHaveBeenHereSometime？right after seeing some images of mirrors and our brain said： “；Wow， what a great deeply-orange painted mirror! Why don’；t we make one of those？!!”； ？Then we scrolled down and read the copy.

Beautiful. So we read about Roeth and looked at some pictures.
We still loved the idea for a deeply orange-framed mirror， inspired by Roeth (whose work we can’；f afford) and went hunting around for how to make， or get， one.

Then we went looking for wood framed mirrors.？Voila， Ikea of course： ？Molger， made of birch， in a square or big rectangles. (It’；s polyeurothaned so you might need to prime it first.)
Then we stumbled on a DONE orange mirror. Haven’；t seen Mongstad in person， but it looks good from here：
Funny how an orange-framed mirror –； ？just the right orange –； can change the view.

The harsh reality of white-painted floors like the ones in our ‘laboratory’ is that they are prone to scratching and losing their pristine look FAST. Since our plywood floors were painted a beautiful oyster shell white (THAT story to come in a later post), it has been our personal challenge to GET OVER the fact that they will get nicked, scratched, stained and who knows what else…
