Description This masterful floor candelabrum is attributed to the New Hope woodworker and sculptor, James Martin, who served as an extended apprentice to George Nakashima. Often, when Nakashima's studio had a lengthy waitlist for orders, he would employ Martin to complete these projects. His craftsmanship was refined enough to meet Nakashima's high standards.
This elegant, sculptural piece is comprised of a semicircle of six candles in walnut and spun aluminum. The frame and base are also carved walnut.
Additionally, Martin designed and crafted a hanging version; this floor example is scarcely seen.
The piece is unsigned by Martin, but branded with an 's' on the underside of the base.
