18th century Italian gold leaf candlestick with faden crystal and a gold leaf shell on an optical calcite base.
The candlestick is originally from Tuscany. It is joined together with the faden crystal, gold leaf shell, and optical calcite base to create a sculptural work of old and new. The crystal and calcite encase the fragment, giving the illusion that the candlestick has been frozen in time.
The Italian church candlestick artifact, faden crystal, gold leaf shell, and optical calcite are put together in a sculptural form - creating a piece that appears to have evolved together over time. Interpreting the past to create a piece entirely original, evolving in its own right.
