Mirrors from Jet Engines

May 2003

Small Mirror

If you take an old jet engine apart (as you do) you'll have a large pile of carefully-machined stainless steel rings. I've used some of these to make mirrors, in a cyberpunk / industrial style.

Small mirror - 15" diameter. Stainless steel

From the front, the frame of this style is near-invisible. From the side it's a ring of polished diagonal steel stripes.

Titanium Mirror

This one is much bigger, and visually more imposing. The frame is deep, with a 2" frame in front of a recessed glass.

Material is solid titanium, with a heat-blued finish. Colours are a random swirl of blues and purples.

It's bigger than the other mirrors, Eastern European (I think it's from a Mig-29).

Materials

How cyberpunk can one get? All of these mirrors are made from scrap jet aircraft engines. Some of Rolls-Royce's finest engineering in stainless steel and titanium. The orignal price of these things doesn't bear thinking about - now you can hang them on the bathroom wall.

All of these mirrors are hand-made from genuine recycled scrap. I make them when I can, so it depends on the number of aircraft I can get hold of

The metalwork is hand-polished and suitable for use in bathrooms. The lighter mirrors can just hang on a picture hook, the heavier ones ought to be screwed to a wall (all fittings supplied).

Illuminated Mirror

These are from end of the engine's compressor, so they have a ring of curved fan blades. My idea is to use them as illuminated make-up mirrors, with a ring of illuminated glass around a central miror.

Mirror is 14" diameter, frame is 18" overall. Stainless steel

news: Still a few issues with lighting to sort out.
