Image of 5 cast pewter candlesticks. The packaging material has been kept wrapped around the silver candlestick a mould made and a casting of the wrapped candlestick then produced equalling all materials to one; pewter


Using silver candlesticks bought initially from eBay, this series of five cast candlesticks are formed using the original packaging the objects arrived in; bubble wrap, cardboard and foam. We usually discard the packaging as junk, but I wanted to level the materials and create new forms using a classic production process. The mould disintegrated just a little after each casting, creating unique one-off pieces.
