Sculptures made of CD shards

Sean Avery carefully constructs flora and fauna from old compact discs and DVDs, the razor-sharp delights are especially beautiful outdoors, where the light glints off each shard.

Here's how he made these cool roses using a modified technique:

1. Coat a piece of wire (the stem) in hot glue. Garnish with toothpicks for thorns

2. Spray paint the stem with chrome paint

3. Cut petal shapes out of CDs with a pair of kitchen scissors

4. Warp and hand shape petals with a heat gun

5. Glue petals to the chrome stem
