The crackled design mirror frame comprises literally thousands of fragments of eggshell inlaid by hand in what we call a crackled effect. This is Africa’s answer to a cracked glaze found on ceramics but infinitely more skilfull and time-consuming to create. An understated beauty with a clean contemporary look, this mirror provides the ideal contrast to roughly textured and darker walls.
AVOOVA produces exquisitely hand-crafted décor and larger interior pieces, clothed in a seductive mantle of ostrich eggshell – one of the world’s most luxurious natural veneers. Every one of the many hundreds or thousands of fragments of ostrich eggshell that adorn an AVOOVA piece will have begun the journey as hatched eggs gathered from the ostrich breeders of the Karoo region of South Africa. From fine jewelry to refind table tops, all of AVOOVA’s creations pass through the skill hands of its 50-plus artisans working at AVOOVA’s workshops deep in this remote and beautiful area.
