Lee Borthwick is a London based artist that creates custom-made and site-specific natural artworks for residential, commercial and exterior spaces. Some of them might resemble installation art in your home.
It is Lee’s distinctive approach of combining pieces of tree and mirror that led to the creation of her signature “Mirror Tapestries” and the establishing of her studio in 2009. Ethically sourced materials and a view to encapsulating a sense of peace and serenity are the principles that underpin everything that the studio produces.
The richly textured relief bestows a great sense of tranquility on the room and enhances the elegance of the space. Light drawn from the outdoors creates a striking vibrancy in the mirrors effecting an ever-changing display of dancing patterns reflected across the walls.
Lee’s pieces of art are made to order and can be constructed to a variety of scales. The original mirror tapestry has a popular size but they can be custom made to any size, landscape, and portrait design. The artist can produce limited runs of the same scale if required. The wood is threaded together with wire and the mirror is polished mirror steel.

“Each piece of wood I collect has a narrative and a past, each piece of work therefor rendered unique. Through an array of sustainable and local sourcing techniques and, well, having developed a reputation as a bit of a log lady…. I have a wonderful selection of branches and logs in the workshop… “, explains Borthwick.
