12-14 Weeks Lead-Time
By Karl Zahn
The Marquis Slab is the first in a new vernacular of polished brass pieces by Karl Zahn. Beginning with strict geometric boundaries and guidelines, each mirror is handmade to order by a team of brass craftsmen. The parts are all hollow tubing, but appear to be solid and deceptively heavy. This gives the mirror a visually impressive mass when mounted. Although it has been polished to a mirror finish, slight ripples in the metal augment and distort our reflected world. The hand of the craftsman is thus revealed as the instrument of its fine geometric surfaces.
