Osanna Visconti

Alga Hand-Cast Bronze Candle Holder

$1,920

An elegant manifestation of the ancient lost-wax casting process, the triple-arm Alga candle holder begins life as a wax sculpture, cast then melted away to be replaced by molten bronze. Working from her Milan atelier, Visconti kneads and shapes everything by hand in organic forms recalling living seaweed.

Osanna Visconti

Schooled by accomplished artists in Rome, Osanna Visconti is an expert in the millennia-old “lost wax casting” technique. She hand-carves wax forms, casts them in plaster, then melts away the wax — as seen in this black-patinated bronze candle holder.
