I Forge Iron

A sort of a candelabra...


Recommended Posts

The client asked for a candle holder for 5 candles.

When I got back to him, I offered five candle holders that were to be shaped in the form of pentagons. The gods of geometry have also declared that five pentagons fitted around a sixth pentagon form in turn another pentagon that would realy look like a five branch candelabra.

I sent the client photos of a cardboard pentagon with a mushroom and a candle holder. The mushroom came to mind because the client deals in vegetables, herbs and, yes, mushrooms (credit here to the Brian Brazeal blacksmith video for the technique).

The client approved. I forged, I built and the client is happy. Here is the product.

The pentagons fit in a circle having a 5 ½” diameter. Each carries a mushroom and a candle holder. The wood is black Peruvian walnut.


They can be used to illuminate numerous dishes on a table

They can form a path of light

a train of light rushing by

a crescent to highlight a particular dish or an object on a table

Possibilities are endless.

And of course they can all come together with the mushrooms inside

or outside

Thanks for looking.
