This stunning 21 inch mirrored driftwood wreath is everything that is beautiful, unique, and random about driftwood...mixed with perfect symmetry, balance of color and weight and complete harmony of things with (quite literally) different roots.
Many days spent tumbling in the surf and baking on the sand have given these pieces of driftwood their classic, weathered look and color, yet each piece is still beautifully unique. Creams, grays, browns and almost black...some pieces are perfectly straight, while others twist and curve. And somehow, like the ocean they came from, they flow together seamlessly.
Three layers, and approximately 150 pieces of driftwood, circle around a 12 inch mirror. Each piece of driftwood is cut and sanded based on its specific placement and angle. You will see, when you look directly into the mirror, that the cross sections of driftwood form a perfect circle...made from imperfect and natural materials!
This mirror is built on a sturdy 20 inch (1/8 inch thick) wooden circular board. It hangs by a strong (4 mm thick) cotton cord that is secured through the board. The hanger will not be seen when the mirror in placed on the wall. I would suggest using a mount such as an angled picture hanger for easiest and most secure hanging.
Each piece of driftwood is glued using a variety of industrial strength adhesives. I do not use nails or screws. I find that this better maintains the integrity of the wood. Each piece of driftwood is secured at many points to its neighboring pieces which gives structure and durability to the finished wreath.
Beautifully bold and beachy, but also elegant and organic. And never another like this one.
