create a ceiling sculpture

diwa previously won kudos for his good looking laundry hamper, even a nod from la apartmenttherapy. he does it again with this ceiling sculpture.

“it started when i bought an extra ivar brace frame by mistake. i was looking at it and thinking, ‘i am sure i can do something fun with this’. i was intrigued by the idea of hanging it from a ceiling. my idea was to make a light fixture out of it, but i never really integrated any lights into it. i do plan to add small LEDs between the plexi panels someday, but for now, it remains a sculptural ceiling fixture.

some hand-cut 1/4 inch plexiglass, steel cable, fishing line, tension springs and the versatile ivar brace was all i used and yes, a threaded rod and nuts to hold the plexi in place.”
