Cast Bronze Candelabras for the Modern Monarch

Alexa Hotz December 03, 2012

File this under: holiday gift for the 1 percent, but these sculptural candelabras are so seductive that anyone can admire them, even from afar.

Designed by Brooklyn-based Fort Standard, the candelabras are made from sprue, also known as gating wax, a material used in casting to direct the flow of molten metals. In the process of creating each candelabra, the molds are destroyed so each piece is shaped unique to itself. Below are some of the regal-looking candelabras, priced from high (brace yourself) to low.

Above: The Sprue Candelabra 4 is $3,600 at Matter in New York.

Above: The Sprue Candelabra 2 is $3,000 from Matter in New York.

Above: The Sprue Candelabra 3 is $3,000 at Matter in New York.

Above: The Sprue Candelabra SCP Edition is a collaboration a collaboration between London-based SCP and Fort Standard. The candelabra retains the rough texture of the sand casting process; £530 available directly from SCP.

Above: The Sprue Candlesticks are made in Woolwich and also available in gunmetal and aluminum; £135 each from SCP in the UK.
