Bark Frameworks 23-Karat Gold Pleated Wall Mirror, Designed by Jared Bark

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Pleated facets inform the name of this Bark Frameworks mirror, which was designed by company founder and artist Jared Bark. The entire maple frame is gilded in 23-karat yellow gold over dark red bole (clay). The pleats are matte; the inner panel and zig-zag outer edge are burnished. The mirror glass shown here is hand cast and hand silvered -- we can create a custom Pleated mirror around hand-cast glass we have available at our shop (usually approx. 8" x 10"); or regular water-white mirror glass can be used in any size (beveled or non-beveled).

Because every Bark Frameworks mirror is finished by hand, there will be slight variations on the finish -- each mirror is wholly unique. Customization available upon request.

Customization Options

Customers can choose from: Size: Can be custom-made to size, please inquire. Gilding: silver leaf, palladium, 12kt white gold, 18kt lemon gold, 22kt moon gold (similar to rose gold), or 23kt yellow gold. Finish: light, medium, or heavy rub (to dull burnishing) Mirror Glass: Water white (low iron) mirror glass, beveled or non-beveled (endless sizes); hand-cast mirror glass (limited quantities and sizes). Backing: D-rings straight up (recommended); wire across; or both.

About the Maker

Established in 1969, Bark Frameworks designs and produces frames for artwork and mirrors. Our commitment to innovative design is visible in every mirror frame we create. A Bark Frameworks mirror is a unique object. Every Bark frame is custom made at our 27,000-square-foot facility in Long Island City by craftspeople who have honed their skills for years, sometimes decades. Our LIC shop -- which houses two showrooms, design and art preservation studios, a wood shop, a metal shop, and a gilding studio – allows us to offer clients nearly-endless customization options for mirrors when it comes to size, material, and finish. In addition to our own original profiles, the frame designs of Edgar Degas inspired some of our mirror frames. After company founder Jared Bark researched the artist’s notebooks firsthand in Paris in the 1990s, we decided to build many of these never-before-produced frames. Now, these once-radical designs add elegance to any interior.
