Mesmerizing Mirror Art Sculpture Making

Occurred on June 11, 2019 / Penland, North Carolina, USA

Info from Licensor: "Thor Bueno is a North Carolina based artist who creates art glass sculptures with his wife, Jennifer Bueno. In this video, we see Thor applying the final step of an industrial mirroring process to the inside of a bubble he blew earlier. Thor is pouring in a solution of silver nitrate and a reducing agent, which reacts with the tin-based sensitizing agent applied a few minutes earlier, creating a silver coating on the inside of the glass, which is later covered with lacquer, for protection. The glass will eventually hang from the wall, from the hole in the back of the piece. The curve of the glass creates a beautiful optical effect with the mirrored surface that people love to display in their homes."
