This piece imagines a scene where the Devil gifts their guests a toolbox for a journey through Hell. It is clunky, hard to hold, and very pointy, making the journey more burdensome. One cannot abandon the box, fearing the Devil will curse their journey if they disrespect the gift. This piece explores fear, respect, and the emotional and physical burden of gifts.
The Pinky Candle is inspired by people dipping their fingers into wax. Its organic body allows it to be both unique for a candle form and celebratory of modern manufacturing techniques such as CNC machining.
I also designed a stand for the candles that could be bent and welded together in 15 minutes.
