A candelabra or table sculpture, which was inspired by the forms of blossoming branches of the Blackthorn, whose delicate spherical blooms are surrounded and protected by the long, sharp thorns that give it its name.
Made from the engineered and jointed antlers, naturally shed by british Red, Sika and Roe deer, covered in a hard wearing black gesso, with a matte polished finish. This is set with the spherical candle holders in a deeply patinated and oil rubbed brass.
