Hand wrought copper candleholders by Greg Hessel are the perfect adornment for a table top, fireplace mantle or niche, adding drama and height. Greg’s designs look beautiful alone, paired or in groupings of various sizes as ge combines techniques and tools from both wrought iron and jewelry traditions. As a result, his designs have an interesting and organic quality combined with high refinement and delicacy.  Gregg is inspired by traditional metalworking techniques, but has also imprinted his own methods and tools on his work. The hand forging of copper involves much heat and hammering. These gorgeous candlesticks are a perfect pair with our Danica tapers. Handmade on the coast of Maine, they come in a rainbow of colors. Candlesticks range from $135 to $225. Candles are $5 a pair.
