Made to Order Aspasia Mirror by Toronto furniture designer Mary Ratcliffe / The Aspasia Mirror takes its cues from memories of warmer lazier days. Bronzed glass is supported in a rhythmic, oiled white oak frame and mounted on a recessed backing board. The mirror is crowned with a curved piece of brushed brass evoking the feelings of a setting sun and creating a curved key-hole shape. /// 38”D x 42”H //// Design by Mary Ratcliffe

Mary Ratcliffe is the founder of Mary Ratcliffe Studio (M.R.S) Mary’s work is often described to have an elegant toughness. M.R.S builds furniture with the a love for the ying and the yang, the feminine and the masculine, the soft and the tough. To say that ‘it’s in her blood’ is an understatement–it’s also on her clothes, under her fingernails, and quite often on her face. The beauty that emerges from the grit fuels the passion behind her work. Countless hours spent in the shop has allowed Mary to develop proprietary techniques, finishes and colours that are now synonymous with the honest aesthetic of M.R.S. Mary and her work have been featured in Toronto Life, The Toronto Star, CBC, the Globe and Mail, Design Lines and Vogue.
