Bourj Hammoud, Matn district
Harry’s craft carer began with engraving mirror and glass, before he learnt the art of metal pressing in Cyprus. In his shop on Armenia Street, Harry Masrojian sells pewter and copper frames. There, you can find a selection of frames, mirrors, pictures, religious icons, and even jewellery boxes in silver or copper that he handmakes. He uses mixed media to produce items that combine metal, cloth and paint. He is especially known for his wonderful mirror frames, and for his coffers. His designs span generations and cultures; some have a more oriental or arabesque feel, while others lean more towards a Mediterranean design.
