Candelabras bring to the imagination a vision of Beethoven playing the Moonlight Sonata on a grand piano with a candelabra on top, or a roam through a big castle with a candelabra’s flickering candles lighting the way. Maybe I’ve watched too many movies? Candelabras provide the warm light of many flames burning together, enhancing a mood or environment. I say all that, but I don’t yet have one, though that may change soon.
This Friday the work of artist, Joseph Ivacic, will go on display at Haus in Andersonville. Joseph’s chosen medium is glass and this particular display entitled, “Things Left Behind”, presents us with beautiful glass candelabras. His candelabras are intricate yet simple, delicate yet substantial. They evoke a feeling of the Renaissance period though they are modern in a way that can enhance any room. I might need to have one and you might too!
As a conceptual artist, my work reflects my interest in nature, current events, relationships and the human condition.
Haus specializes in the integration of art and design for the home by providing handmade, unique, and limited production furntiure and home accessories.
Each piece we select reflects the sensibilities of modern design and the timelessness of traditional craft.
There will be an opening reception with refreshments on Friday, September 19th from 7-10 p.m. and the work will remain at Haus throughout September and Octoer.
