Bell Tower Candle goes into production
Aug 07, 2016
Leading up to this I've created the original model, made a silicone glove mold and an outer shell. Twice. I'm now able to pour 2 Bell Tower Candles and 3 Water Tower Candles at the same time. For me that's high production! More details and photos can be found at http://ypsilantiwatertower.com you had me at 'Bell Tower Candle' A prominent landmark and symbol of the University if Michigan in Ann Arbor, Mi, the Burton Memorial Tower and Baird Grand Carillon is commonly known as the Bell Tower. Rendered here as a hand made soy-blend candle. The Bell Tower Candle stands 10.5" tall. I have many great memories of the tower from rallys and protests on the U of M diag, to a personal tour and concert played on the amazing carillon bells. Because of the unique shape of this candle, dripping may occur. Always place in a heat-safe plate or dish when burning. Burn time aprox 30 hours.

The Art Storefronts Organization has verified that this Art Seller has published information about the archival materials used to create their products in an effort to provide transparency to buyers.
Description from Merchant:
All canvas used is heavy cotton duck canvas, stretched in-studio onto wood stretchers. The gesso used is of high quality, and each painting receives a minimum of three coats to ensure a stable painting surface. Masonite and MDF board are used for panels, and are sealed with the same care as canvases. Archival materials are used throughout the process.
Found object works contain a variety of media. In all cases, I've used a two-part resin to seal objects and protect the surface. All work made to last for decades to come.
