Fairground-type mirrors reflecting distorted images have been among commissions accepted recently by Uckfield Framing Company.
The first set created by the firm, which is based on the Bellbrook Industrial Estate, went to the private customer of an interior design company who wanted them for the landing of their Sussex Manor House near Gatwick.
Another set have now been dispatched to Aberdeen.
Company founder Tim Benians said: “Shape-shifting seems to be all the rage – although it is to be noted that none of the girls at the workshop lingered in front of the ‘short and wide’ mirror.”
Mr Benians added: “Judging by the widespread enquiries we get it seems we are one of the very few manufacturers of these funfair mirrors in the UK.”
Other projects tackled by the company include making frames for Tower of London poppies; and to fill the House of Minalima, a four-storey exhibition and shop in London’s Soho.
Exhibits at the House of Minalima include a range of Harry Potter pictures, and 50 prints, each giving the collective noun for the object it describes, such as a clattering of Choughs (a black Eurasian and North African bird of the crow family); a peleton of cyclists or a crash of rhinoceroses.
