The Engraved NECTAR Mirror by Oskar Zieta and James Jean
View Slideshow

Polish designer Oskar Zięta and Taiwanese-American visual artist James Jean have combined both their unique talents to create a unique object, the Nectar. Inspired by both artists’ affinity for organic and fluid lines, the NECTAR is a mirror-polished steel structure with an intricately engraved illustration depicting exotic flowers, bold leaves and tropical birds. The hardness of the steel TAFLA O3 mirror is balanced with the softness of the drawing. Upon closer inspection, one can get lost in the fractalesque shapes formed by the two elements.

NECTAR was on view at the JingArt Beijing 2021 Fair with Gallery All, the Los Angeles-based design gallery representing Zięta.
