12.5" Candlestick by Tyler David
Turned wood candlestick made by Tyler David of Potosi, Wisconsin.
When Tyler was 12 years old he came across a discovery in his dad’s woodworking shop. Responding to a request for a color candlestick, he used Crayola crayons on a spinal that was turning on the lathe. A rag was then pressed into the wood as it was spinning, creating friction which melted the wax from the crayon into the wood, leaving a smooth and permanent pigment.
He continue to make these colored spindles on the lathe and eventually adapted the spindles into candleholders. A professional oil pastel has replaced the Crayola crayons and after coloring, the candlesticks are given a clearcoat of polyurethane.
After graduating from the University of Wisconsin he joined the business his father, master craftsman Gary David developed over many years.
Each candlestick is unique in its shape and color combinations.
Comes with a white, scentless candle.
Dimensions: approximately 12.5" tall (measurement does not include candle)
