Broken Wine Glass Splatter Art

Doing dishes tonight, I inadvertently did that slapstick comedy trick of pulling the tablecloth out from under a bunch of dishes only to send all the dishes crashing to the floor. Only it wasn’t a tablecloth and it wasn’t a bunch of dishes: it was a dish towel and a half full wine glass. And it didn’t crash to the floor, it tipped and shattered on the table resulting in the image you see above.

But it’s a pretty image, isn’t it? Maybe even a work of art? If it is, I did it on purpose. I’m the Annie Leibovitz of broken wine glass photography.

P.S. That’s a box of Clementines you see on the lower left; I bought them today seeking a fruit fix in the late afternoon. They cost $6 for 8,000 Clementines (ok, not 8000–maybe 30? 20?) and they are so much fun to peel and eat. I’m going to go peel and eat one RIGHT NOW.

  1. You totally did that on purpose for the art. =P And yes, clementines are awesome. They were on sale for me in Portland, ME this week for $6 too! It doesn’t matter that I’m leaving in a week to go home; I still bought the crate for my one-person household. I ate 6 in one day once…

    I may have a sickness…clementine’s disease! =P

  2. Clementines are addictive! I ate 6 yesterday. I think it’s because they are so cute.

    When I break dishes, it doesn’t look half that artistic; that’s talent.

  3. Clementines are the bomb. They actually taste very good in red wine sangria…

    My family trades clementines in for bowl of chips over the holidays.

  4. Clementines are great and so is red wine. The spilled wine is a shame but the bigger shame is the ice! Say it ain’t so! Ice in your red wine?

  5. Seth, how dare you accuse me of putting ice in my wine! That’s broken glass. You know, the stuff Annie Lennox walks on? The stuff that makes Jewish people get married? You should know better!
