An Art Deco Mirror

I know many people who love sunburst mirrors. You can find blog post after blog post on the internet of people curating and commenting on their favorite sunbursts. Here’s my collection of sunburst mirrors, curated for inspiration.

I think these can be described as being in the Art Deco style thanks to their rectilinear or curvilinear rays. I decided to model one, to hang above the Art Deco bed we modeled earlier. It’s a quick, simple model. Here it is:

Modeled and rendered with Shade 12 (path tracing). For the background seen on the reflection I used a HDR light probe image from the Light Probe Image Gallery by Paul Debevec.

It’s a view of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. Would love to visit there one day!

Gotta work on the entire Art Deco room now. I still need to finish a door part…

    They’re pretty but not an efficient use of space.
    Reminds me a little of that mirror in the Magician’s corridor in the Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

    • Accessories are hardly employed for “efficient use of space”. They’re often there completely for aesthetic reasons. We’re not decorating a 1mx1m wall here–we’re accessorizing a relatively spacious room.
