Hand Carved Cherry with Shellac Polish Finish
40” H (without candle)
I laminated thick cherry planks, then bandsawed the shape of the stand for carving. The brass candle cup and bobeche are attached to a cherry handle for use in processions. The handle fits into a recess in the top of the paschal candle stand. The brass cup can be replaced with other diameter cups to accommodate most paschal candles.
The custom carvings are religious symbols based on client sketches.
My client was pretty happy with this piece, and so was I:
”The Paschal candle stand is more than I ever expected. It was a true joy to work with you. You completely understood what the family had wanted. You have such a God-given gift in your artistry. You were able to take my descriptions and basic design plans via e-mail communication and turn it into a beautiful work of art. This piece will be cherished in my congregation for years to come. I thank God that He directed my internet search to your website. We could not have received such a beautiful gift in memory of both of my parents anywhere else. Thank you again for sharing your gift with us in the form of this beautiful Paschal Candle stand.” Bethanne, Old Bridge, NJ
