This candlestick is a good example of how Koppel’s later designs adopt a tauter idiom compared with the early very organic works like his pitchers. The design is still very strong and superior but more simple, symmetric and less curvy.

To get a good feeling for Henning Koppel and his world please read the book “The World of Henning Koppel” by Niels-Jørgen Kaiser.

In all its simplicity this candlestick requires great accuracy of the craftsmen. The metal spinner will make the body and the actual candle holder on his spinning machine and after a first grinding the silversmith will then solder on the bottom and the candle holder.
