Pair of candle holders

Unread post by Darryl Ponder » Tue Apr 30, 2013 10:19 pm

Here are a pair of candle holders I made just after taking up blacksmithing. The designs are from the anvilfire.com website. The little one was a bear to get to sit level. I had to use a torch to heat it up and bend it in small increments until it sat reasonably level.

The larger holder is three pieces of round stock welded together and then twisted. A drip pan is brazed on top. The smaller is a piece of black water pipe, formed into a cup and filial and wound about with round stock, with a decorative leaf motif formed on one end and handle on the other.
