Weybourne Candelabra

I installed a candelabra on Christmas eve that I designed and worked on with Brian Turner, a lead worker (‘plumber’). He made the body of the candelabra and designed and made many of the components. There was a lot of problem solving for him produce the finished article from my initial sketches. The stone base was carved in Kilkenny limestone, the rest was iron and copper, with many of the elements hand shaped. The piece was commissioned by Margaret Broad in memory of her husband Peter. Here are a few pictures:initial sketches
