Moth and Mirror was founded in November 2013 and is a partnership between Lenore Zavitz, a gilder and gilding restorer and Richard Mills, a lifelong wood turner. Their work aims to harmoniously combine the earthy tones of wood with the dramatic glow of gilded metals into objects of beauty and delight.
Our aim at Moth and Mirror is simply to create beautiful things. The name is a reflection of the combining of organic, natural materials, represented by the moth, and the mirror, which represents the fine metal leaf. Our pieces are a fusion of the textures and sheen of lush wood with the fire and light of exquisite precious metals. The result is something that’s a little bit of alchemy, a lot of luxury and entirely desirable. Every item we create has an individual personality and is highly finished, elegant and eye catching.
In addition to our collections we will also undertake bespoke work, making whatever you need or desire from whatever wood and leaf you choose. This could be anything from a unique focal piece of art customised to your home to the perfect wedding gift.
