Dark Crystals Overgrown Candelabra | Candelabra

Dark crystals Overgrown Candelabra is a thought-provoking piece in its aesthetic and narrative. It exemplifies an object, here the candelabra, forgotten in time. The crystals have taken over the boring surfaces of the candelabra, neglected and ignored--human experiences which no one wants to go through.

With Crystals Overgrown, Mark succeeds in challenging this narrative just as he challenges manufacturing, as it is based one processes which derives the same output.

Crystals Overgrown Candelabra is available in 2 sizes and also comes in Crystals Overgrown Candelabra version.

Dimensions: W25 D25 H33H CM | W32 D32 H42H CM
