Carved and painted lime
170mm(w) x 360mm(h) x 100mm(d)
This was one of 21 candleholders which I carved for my daughter’s wedding.
When making this piece I had some thoughts about nature, balance and Shintoism. The inscription on the front reads “peapod” not to be confused with the Japanese designed “peepod” which is something quite different.
The candle holder is a sake cup from Shigaraki, one of the six ancient kilns of Japan
