Candlestick Trio II, a product of the delicate handiwork of Paris-based artist Han-Chiao, is comprised of three wholly unique taper candlestick holders, each with its own intricate detailing. Made from black sand and glazed in white zinc oxide, the material makes them look like Shang Dynasty ritual bronze vessels or Han Dynasty pottery excavated from a grave. Han-Chiao notes that her black stoneware pieces echo the millennium-old tradition of binding a Chinese girl’s feet so that she had limited mobility—and was better suited for marriage. “Comparable to the Asian women who would shift from side to side when walking, the vessel reveals this same feminine, dance-like form, counterbalanced by primitive heart-drawn shapes that imitate [cave] art from prehistoric times,” she says. 

Material: Black Stoneware

H 7 1/2", H 6", H 4"
