Osanna Visconti

Nastro Hand-Cast Bronze Candle Holder

€1,915

An elegant manifestation of the ancient lost-wax casting process, each Nastro candlestick begins life as a wax sculpture, cast then melted away to be replaced with molten bronze. Visconti kneads and shapes everything by hand in whimsical ribbon twists. This piece is finished in a black patina.
