Contemporary Scepter Candleholder (pair) in Blackened Steel



Scepter candleholder (pair) are forged and fabricated steel candleholders by metal artist Albert Paley. Albert Paley (born 1944) is an American modernist metal sculptor. Initially starting out as a jeweler, Paley has become one of the most distinguished and influential metalsmiths in the world. Within each of his works, three foundational elements stay true: the natural environment, the built environment, and the human presence. Paley is the first metal sculptor to have received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Institute of Architects.
