David Taylor, ‘Portland Candlesticks’, 2012, The NWBLK

The concrete candlestick “Portland” is symptomatic of Taylor's approach, where visual impression, use of material and quality in execution are the most important ingredients of the making. Concrete has a brutal architectural aspect that is perfect for use in an object with such obvious liturgical reference. As a material it has an inherent beauty, shades of gray, to be layered and contrasted against silver.
