The mocca cup candleholder... or something about doing things with an ease

This is by so far my favorite candleholder, and yes, I made it. Not in the studio, but at home at the kitchentable, using bits and pieces from the kitchen cabinet. It is assembled with a very strong clear two component glue. Using an element for something else than it was originally intended to, makes it all fun and easy.

There is just something about candleholders... they are complicated. Stubborn little snobbish creatures, not really wanting to have anything to do with others, except that identical one standing next to them. Hmmm... they nag me... But I love candles and I NEED candleholders and this one says: I come in peace...
So, wellcome.





It is the time of the year, where the studio's filled with pots... I throw pots in big patches to fill an order. Something happends after I have thrown the first 20. The repetition, the rhytm , the flow, those tiny variations. At the same time it is 120 small stories and one long one. All I want to do is doing things with an ease because it makes it easier for others to approach it.

Very nice, both the candle holder and the pots. I love the pots just the way they are, unglazed.

I love the little teacups used in your candlestick, very novel, cute but also a little alarming for a teacup collector! I sometimes get cups thinking I will use them for something but they end up in my china cupboard used frequently and featured in my blog!
You are very productive! What an impressive lot of pots! I also like the vests in the previous post..and the hangers, they are cute!

Hvor ser dit keramik skønt ud......i dejlige former og selvom de står i flok, synes jeg stadig de gør deres job og skiller sig ud hver især.

Din vintage lysestage er en genial idé. Ingen af kopperne havde vel troet at de skulle ende som ophøjede skønhder ;0)
