Golden rays surround the gentle face of a crystalline sun. Marco Polo sculpts this enchanting wall-hung candleholder from iron. Centered by a blown-glass visage, it holds a single candle.
About the Artist: When Marco Polo was 13 years old, he was already working in a forged iron workshop to pay for school. 'When I was 23, my wife and I decided to open our own workshop with a different design concept featuring perforated silhouettes from sheet metal. The shapes are cut freehand, and we give them form and texture with a hammer and other tools that I've made myself. All my designs arise from my imagination, from dreams, or whatever comes to mind as I begin to work with the metal.'
The Marco Polo Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Marco Polo in Mexico. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
