Surprising candleholders

A few years ago I made these candleholders by cutting off a pair of boat horns. When I started using them I was surprised by the strong formal effect of the candle holders being flush with the candles themselves. I think it’s a good example of how the effect of a certain feature often doesn’t appear until you try it in real life. Which is why you make models and prototypes. Recently I was surprised again, by the dripping stearin detaching itself and making this beautiful bow. You can’t blame them for stealing your attention like this, they are after all boat horns…
