These works are based on the idea of a mirror as a decoration rather then display for decorative pieces. In "Reflections", pieces of mirror are set as a stones in a way so to reflect the enamel paterns painted on the inside of the silver segments. In "Mirrors" ten hand crafted obsidians with glosy surface but no reflective powers are used to render the idea of self reflection. "Reflections" is owned by and included in the permanent collection of The Museum of Fine Arts, Sofia
