Afterimage By Yeodong Yun
Gilt-brass on hand shaped and hammered aluminium.
This wall mounted candle sconce is completed from cutting to polishing by a single artist with various fine hand-crafting techniques.
The body is wide enough for a long candle with golden reflections which gently diffuses light around the space.
The objet can be used in sheltered outdoors as it is urethane coated on its surface.
Even so, please avoid direct contact with water.
Yun is a contemporary metallist who started her career in jewellery, now she is creating her own formative language with scale and volume.
She is particularly fascinated by metal crafting techniques from the ancient Korean era, Shilla and Kaya, especially 5th - 7th century.
The method of tapping and shaping the sheet transforming into an atypical organic form testifies to her love for the era.
Autographed by the artist at the back with the year of production.
Hanging fittings are included.
