About the Work 

Entirely unique in design and form, James Shaw’s Baroque Mirror forms part of a collection of sculptural homewares, created using waste plastics in an assortment of vivid colours.

A lesson in functional art, each of Shaw’s unexpected creations brings out the beauty and excitement of the waste material, transforming it into something of lasting interest and value. Alluding to forms of the baroque era, this wall mirror is hand-formed from recycled HDPE plastic using an extrusion gun of Shaw’s own design. With a unique, one-of-a-kind charm, it’s destined to be the focal point of any room.
