the slag series.

scottish born designer david taylor has created a slag series of candlesticks incorporating waste leftover at a former iron foundry. have a look...
slag is a bi-product of "the smelting or refining of metal ore." david told dezeen magazine that he leaves the materials pretty much as he finds it. in a raw blue-black state.

as interesting as the slag is, the ways with which david positions each found chunk and what materials share the stage with the candle. from brass to aluminum they become something more, more exciting in some way. singularly they are stunning, but can you imagine hosting a dinner party and letting david's candlesticks line a long dining table? you wouldn't even need flowers! enjoy...
