How to Make: Sparklehive

Pyramid 1 |  /// cups

The superstar of Sabel’s collection is Sparklehive, the Frank Lloyd Wright of sparkleballs.  It’s built in two pyramids of stacked rectangles, which are then joined end to end with a soldering iron.  Pyramid one (at left) is 6 tiers of cups placed the same way  //// .  In Pyramid two the cups are nested /\//\/.  A light strand is suspended inside from the top and  cascades down.    Sabel says that Sparklehive looms over the room in a wonderfully creepy way.  I think it’s quite majestic.

 

 

 

 

 

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.
