Over the Falls Candle Holder (Commissioned)

Gift

My tax advisor, an avid surfer, not only charged me a minimal amount for accounting services, but also gave me a large branch from a storm-fallen olive tree. It only seemed right to give her the first piece that I created from the tree, a surf-themed turned olive wood and copper metal-sculpture candle holder titled "Over the Falls."

When a surfer falls off the board and the wave sucks him or her up in a circular motion along with the lip of the wave, it’s called going “over the falls”. The copper surf board, fin up, is tossed alone on the fine wavy grain of the turned olive wood. The copper is flame-colored, and the olive received a light stain and several coats of rubbed oil.

The piece is 4’’ tall and 4’’ in diameter.
