42,000 Match Sphere Gets Lit

What happens when you start gluing matches together? Because the heads are slightly wider than the wooden bodies, they begin to form a sphere. This was an experiment in how many matches it would take to get all the way around to make a perfect globe. After months of gluing and gluing and gluing we made it to the other side. Then the experiment shifted to see what it would look like when this thing burned. Enjoy!

    • next time make a jig to create small cylinders, combine em into a multigonal sphere and stuff em up with match packs. this will allow you to place about 50 at once. should be ready in a couple of weeks or so... Oh! they can be octagonal shape - even easier to combine later..
