The very refined process of creating interesting mirror shards

In a recent blog post, I introduced some of my latest images, which include working with some brand new broken mirror shards. Over the years, the process of generating new and interesting shapes of these mirror fragments has evolved. My first attempt involved bending an 8′ plexiglass mirror back on itself until it exploded, dangerously blasting reflective projectiles across the studio in a thunderous CRACK. Since then, however, I’ve developed a much more elegant technique that is not only safer, but produces gorgeous fragments.

Without further ado, the refined process of creating interesting mirror shards:


Materials needed:

Large plexiglass mirror One large, nicely shaped, preferably round rock Thick blanket Model/truck driver Someone to direct the model/truck driver One extremely handsome assistant to record the event on his iPhone

Optional materials:

A hat and gloves- if it happens to be 20 degrees in the middle of winter.
