“Crowd” Candlesticks by David Taylor

David Taylor is back with some fun candlesticks called Crowd, a modular series that all works together.

From the designer:

A crowd is gathering in my workshop as I put together a piece that will continue to change with time. Crowd will ultimately incorporate 25-30 individuals and is an organic community of work rather than a static body. Pieces are replaced with new as they leave the group in a process of continual rejuvenation and reinvention. I am using a full material pallet in this project allowing each candlestick to have it’s own integrity, enabling it to stand alone or work together with any number of “colleagues”.

Crowd represents a departure from my previous stand alone, unique work and aims to incorporate an element of serial production into my craft practice while satisfying my need to avoid repetition and cloning.

Sid: silver, concrete, steel

Angela: concrete, copper, brass

Kevin: brass, concrete, leather

Crowd will be shown for the first time next month at Montan Gallery in Copenhagen, the three shown here and a whole gang of their mates.
