CANDLESTICK / INTRO
TRAY & CANDELABRA HISTORY
Arje Griegst spent several periods throughout his career at the Bel Fiore bronze foundry in Pietrasanta, Italy working on objects in bronze. Using the same self-invented cire perdue technique as in his Spiral series and other jewellery, he conjured bronze candlesticks and candelabras from the 1960s ad onwards. From pieces that almost melt across the table to fairytale growths sprouting water agate eggs they all embody his recurring ideas around metamorphosis.
