I candelieri della Toscana con i cinghiale,

i cherubini ed i galli neri

(Tuscan candlesticks with wild boars, cherubs, and black roosters)
23”x7”x3”. Sterling Silver. Cast and fabricated elements. 2000.
These candlesticks were referenced from the hundreds of decorative candlesticks I observed in my two-year stay in Italy. I sketched a number of them in museums, homes, government buildings, and churches. The candlesticks represent a composite of the iconography of Tuscany and a more postmodern architectonic relationship with Form.
