Single Copper Candle Stand with a Leaf Sculpture
Hand forged functional Copper Candle Stand AUTUMN LEAF sculpture.
The Candle holder has been forged out of a piece of copper pipe using the air-chasing technique to give it a unique rustic texture.
There is a copper leaf detail on this sculpture. I used a leaf skeleton to emboss the pattern on sheet copper using my rolling mill. I was amazed at the detail that printed on the copper when I ran the piece through the roller.
My favourite piece of roller printing to date. I am definitely going to roll more of these leaf skeletons. Isn’t it great that I have an artist friend (yes Eve Marshall, my partner in crime in ‘Esha’ collaborations) who uses these leaves a lot in her work and was able to get some for me in different sizes 🙂
The Candle Stand AUTUMN LEAF is approximately 7.2 cm tall. The base made of 1.2mm gauge copper sheet is 8 cm x 5 cm.The pipe diameter is 2 cm
This sculpture was displayed at Stamford Arts Centre Gallery in October 2017 as part of the Escartists Art Exhibition.
