For this piece, I was requested to do something in the Art Deco style. After doing a bit of research, I came up with a rather quintessentially Art Deco motif. The name seemed to me perfectly old Hollywood, to suit the era. On each arm rests a half sphere which holds a candle, thus, "twilight." The symmetrical uprights are textured to reflect the light and cascade with a fountain effect. This piece will serve as a functional wall-table as well as candelabra.
Better pictures will be posted as they become available.

The hinge of this box is a piece of 1/2" round stock which has been hammered at the top to create a large rivet. The stop is a traditional nail. The lid has scalloped edges. Swiveling the lid is satisfying because of the tight fit and heavy steel.
2008. Approximate dimensions: 6"x4"x5".

An adorable child's hammer tops this little box. The edges of the lid have a hammered texture; fitting, isn't it? The hammer head is broken off of it's handle. Perhaps in a fit of creativity? The moment is encapsulated forever in the broken wood.
