DAVID TAYLOR - CROWD CANDLE HOLDERS
"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”.
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."
