Working in Candlelight

Candlelight is so flattering - warm, soft, glowing.  I light candles in the workshop for this very light - it makes stone look beautiful, casting the softest of shadows, yet picking up a real stoniness.  It helps with carving sometimes, in showing the way for a curve or in judging how far to undercut.  I walk around the carving, raising and lowering the candle, making the stone dance and come alive.

How beautifully comforting and cosy candles are too, in creating a wondrous atmosphere - particularly on these dark, frosty evenings.  So, I really had to make some candlesticks in stone, and I've added these ones to my Made in Stone range.  Hope you like them.
