An unconscious act of brutal efficiency creates unintentional beauty.
The demolition of London’s defunct buildings generates a new material.
Twisted steel re-bar and concrete rubble. Some still encased with the other.

Here re-connected in single continuous lines to form new compositions for suspending counterbalanced candles.
The candlesticks have a weight created by planting them in the ground with concrete, which once dug up create root like bases.
Each individual candlestick can be removed and placed in different positions.
Chandeliers suspend from the ceiling, and are counterbalanced to rise and fall.
Floor standing and tabletop candelabras are weighted and grounded by their concrete bases.
