Candle Holder

Joist is a utilitarian, yet sophisticated candle holder made from extruded brass. The cross-sectional profile is carefully resized and refined for extrusion. While horizontal flanges work both as a base and as a handle, a vertical web supports the candle in place. Joist is a single candle holder, but it can also be extruded longer as a candelabra.

It is the part of an ongoing object series, including a tray, a bowl, and a paperweight, discovering many possibilities of the iconic construction beam.
