Cockamamie Candleholder #3

This is, to date, the final of the candleholder series. I should mention #2 was completed in 2004, this one in 2006. There was a Heavy Duty Menorah produced in between #2 and #3. I'll post it as well.

Unlike CC#1 and CC#2, CC#3 has some traditional joinery (collars), whereas the first two are strictly welded in construction. Also, there are no pre-made or "found objects" in this composition; all elements are forged hot, scrolled, twisted, bent, smooshed, or manipulated in some other way. Dimensions: 35"X14"X11" (w/o candle).

Cockamamie Candleholder #2

This is the Second in the series of three (so far). I choose to use fewer elements than in the first and third. Forged and fabricated, found steel objects, as well. Dimensions: 28.5"X16"X13.5"

Cockamamie Candleholder #1

First in a series of three (so far). Forged and fabricated steel and found steel objects. This one made in 2003, while living and teaching in NW Ohio. Dimensions: 35"X11"X8" (w/o candle).
