Stockholm designer David Taylor sees his latest series of candlesticks as a crowd of friends that changes over time when some of them are bought and others are made to replace them.
At any time the Crowd Candlesticks include 25-30 individually named candlesticks, including Angela, Sid and Kevin (top image, left to right).
"Crowd represents a departure from my previous stand-alone, unique work and aims to incorporate an element of serial production into my craft practice while satisfying my need to avoid repetition and cloning," Taylor tells us.
Concrete, steel, silver, copper, brass and leather are stacked in different combinations to create the bases, which will be presented next month at the Gallery Montan in Copenhagen next month.

Here is some more information from the designer:
A crowd is gathering in my workshop as I put together a piece that will continue to change with time. Crowd will ultimately incorporate 25-30 individuals and is an organic community of work rather than a static body. Pieces are replaced with new as they leave the group in a process of continual rejuvenation and reinvention. I am using a full material pallet in this project allowing each candlestick to have it's own integrity, enabling it to stand alone or work together with any number of "colleagues".
