This candle holder was made for a competition, and it won first prize. The main body is made from monkeypuzzle, with a piece of spalted sycamore on the top to hold the candle cup. Within the hollowed twist is the “flame within”, and insert made from brass. This insert also gives the entire piece quite some weight and stability.
Pieces like this are truly one-off show pieces, and they don’t get much showier than this. Tall, elegant, and bold.
