Hikaru dorodango, or “shiny dumpling,” is the Japanese art of shaping mud into lustrous, perfect balls. This short film from P2 Photography profiles Bruce Gardner at his studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Watch the process unfold as Gardner collects and sifts the dirt, mixes it with water, and then molds it into its finished state.The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic’s belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
