Degas No. 6 Ripple Wall Mirror, Gilded in 23kt Yellow Gold, by Bark Frameworks


This gilded mirror by Bark Frameworks is based on a design by Edgar Degas (1834-1917). The polymath of the Impressionists, Degas sketched profiles throughout his career -- he drew this cross section in his notebooks of 1877-1983. Together, the mirror and frame form an organic whole, with the border undulating like a ripple on a pond. The frame is gilded in 23-karat yellow gold over dark red bole. The mirror glass is water white (low iron) with a 3/4-inch bevel. The most inventive frame designers of the Impressionists, Degas' designs were highly original. However, many of his profiles were never produced until Bark Frameworks decided to build them, after company founder and artist Jared Bark traveled to the Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris to study the artist's original notebooks. Please note: Because every mirror we make is finished by hand, there will be slight variations in the finish -- each mirror is wholly unique. Customization available upon request.

About The Maker

Bark Frameworks

Bark Frameworks

View Profile
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.
