Sabel’s Sparkleballs

Sabel is a filmmaker, artist and photographer who makes sparkleballs.  Each is born out of what’s at hand and then soldered together, with enchanting results.  There’s Sporeball  with tube shotglasses inserted between the 9 oz hard cup layers.  Darkleball’s webbed core of CD’s melted in a microwave.  Mini FireHazard MD’s layers of little medicine dosage cups. Sparklehive composed of 10 oz Chinets in two pyramids, base to base.  And my favorite, Dishwarped, a surreal stunner made  of big cups melted in the dishwasher.  The entire collection is on a timer, and Sabel says that when they’re lit at once it’s like the Tree of Souls in AVATAR.

    1. Hey Carl! I had that same reaction looking at all of Sabel’s work. Very Sci-Fi in the best possible way. That’s why I loved Sabel’s reference to Avatar. Love that sparkleballs can be so many things to people.
