Don't you love these gorgeous candlesticks? All individual works of art, and made entirely from cut glass pieces rescued from junk shops, op shops and the hidden depths of the cupboard. Nothing of any great value. From bon bon dishes to sherry glasses, with the odd parfait dish for good measure, each piece is carefully stacked into the puzzle. My friend Angela says her obsession with finding the glass has got a little out of control, but I can understand how compulsive this glass collecting could become. After seeing these I am desperate to sift through some unloved, still wrapped & stored boxes which I know contain some exceptionally candlestick-suitable glass bits & bobs. Desperate to get down to the Salvation Army & desperate to see if I can construct anything remotely this clever and beautiful. Surely this is upcycling at its best!
How beautiful these would look twinkling on your Christmas table or sideboard!
I rather like that wee dancer leaping in the background too!
