Wooden Hand-turned Candleholder #118

$ 15.00

Remember the “Green Lantern” from the comics and TV? This little candleholder pays homage to that character. This candlestick will hold wax and battery electric votive candles and wax tea light / chafing dish candles. (See photos.) It comes with a battery votive candle. It is ideal for romantic or festive dinner tables, general decoration, emergency lighting and Holiday arrangements. A place on the windowsill to welcome visitors or returning loved ones would be its happiest job.

 

I rescued this almost-firewood because the grain was straight and something inside was calling to be freed. On my lathe, I peeled away every woodchip that didn’t belong yielding this fellow.  (A tool handle would have probably been appropriate too.) There is a dark streak of heartwood on the ‘inner’ side. I turned a shallow trough in the top to help catch any wax that might melt.

It is 3 inches tall and 2 5/8 inches at its widest and hand turned of Maple wood. The finish is a penetrating low-gloss Tung oil finish. I choose this finish instead of polyurethane to protect the wood yet not hide the grain and character of the wood under several coats of a poly-‘plastic’. It is important to me to see and feel the warmth and texture of the wood.

 

Dated, numbered and signed by the artist.
