About Us

Sparkle Pony is a South African Local company looking to at bringing in quality goods into peoples lives.

The Sparkle Pony Team is helping build and raise funds for the Volstruis Paradys

ABOUT THE VOLSTRUIS
The Volstrays Paradys is a project for AfrikaBurn 2017. We feel like the 2017 AfrikaBurn theme PLAY was made just for us. We want to make an art work that connects to the playfulness and inquisitiveness of childhood, is interactive with an African flavor. We want to bring together the magic and skills we learned when we built the Kalahari Calamari. We toyed with the ideas of what gave us the most joy playing and in the end, we have decided to build a merry-go-round that takes one on a magical dessert journey. To bring in the African context, we have decided on use ostriches as part of our design. To make it silly and interactive, we decided that burners would form part of the ostrich legs that push the merry go around with their legs. We also wanted the burners to be able to visually interact with the art piece whilst just “chilling-out”, so there are seats. where they can just sit back and be mesmerized by the lights in the carousel.

HOW YOU CAN HELP US
This project will not be possible without your support. We need to raise R 20 000 for materials and transport of the Volstruis to the Burn. We have decided to raise money by selling something all burners need- high quality, beautiful fairy lights. We will use the profit to toward building the Volstruis. Let us "enlighten" you whilst you help us build the Volstrauis. Lights can be purchased at www.sparklepony.co.za
Alternatively contact us for Banking details if you are interested in a direct donations.

GOT HANDS ON SKILLS?
We need extra hands to help us build the Ostriches. Each Ostrich will be built by a different team and have it's own unique personality. We need help welding. Know where we can get cheaper ever better material? If you are in the Johannesburg area we would appreciate any input.
