Sterling candlesticks, Octagonal in two parts holds four candlesticks.

"When all the pieces are assembled as shown in the photograph, the general appearance of this work is that of a truncated pyramid that tends to become simplified, yet the two semi-circular handles placed half-way up slightly distort the shape of a stylized pyramid." These 1997 Candlesticks constitute further proof that there would be no turning back in the artists style of the nineteen seventies. In other words he committed himself to avant-garde models where pure geometric shapes and well defined lines prevailed."
