Columbina

Carved and painted lime

140mm(w) x 340mm(h) x 150mm(d)

This was one of 21 candleholders which I carved for my daughter’s wedding.

Columbina is a character from the Commedia dell’Arte. I found a dead butterfly in my workshop and immortalised it in copper and paint before placing it on the figures ruff

The candle holder is a bonsai pot from Shigaraki one of the six ancient kilns of Japan
