I want to make a chandelier like Ingo Maurers, Porca Miseria. I am just not sure where to start. Maybe a base?, HELP? Answered

I was just wanting some ideas brainstorming maybe someone else has made one or thought of making one and I love this chandelier I crave it and obsess over it but am afraid to just get in there and start with out a real plan. there are a lot of pics available of them on google images and MOMA and  http://www.christies.com/LotFinder/lot_details.aspx?intObjectID=5126791 any words would be greatly appreciated. Thank You in advance.


That's a chandelier?? Wow!

First thoughts - lengths of piano wire set into a base, and then pieces of crockery epoxied to the wire (avoid hot-glue, which might soften in the heat of lamps.

Thank You I never thought of piano wire.i will look into that. Isn't it a beautiful chandelier.
