Osanna Visconti

Nastro Hand-Cast Bronze Large Candle Holder

€1,915

An elegant manifestation of the ancient lost-wax casting process, each Nastro 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 whimsical ribbon twists.

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.
