An extra large, sculptural candle holder in heavy, silvered metal by American metalworker, Thomas Markusen. The form evokes Modern Brutalism but is also related to historical hollowware designs, particularly trench art vessels crafted earlier in the 20th century from spent shell casings. 

The handsome, heavy metal form was designed to hold a pillar candle. It rests on a flared foot, is silver plated an unusual finish for Markusen's work and hand-finished with visible hammer marks overall. Good condition with a few nicks, scratches and some tarnish, marked with Markusen's RM cipher / 106 / S PLATE around inside of foot, measuring 16.5 in. height x 3.5 in. diameter (at base). 

Markusen is a trained silversmith and blacksmith. His metalwork creations are represented in the Vatican Museum and The White House Collection of Contemporary Crafts.
