Carved and painted lime.

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

Sometimes the title of the piece emerges in the course of being made as here when I added generic local scenes of a harbour.

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