Centrifuge-cast / slumped candlesticks
« on: April 26, 2010, 11:59:41 AM »
I know I've seen these somewhere before, but I can't for the life of me recall where.

The basic shape is centrifuge-cast, and then randomly slumped (I've a pair, and they both 'droop' differently). The glass is too yellowy, I think, for the most likely contenders: Pukeberg and Muurla.

Any ideas gratefully received.

As an aside:

The centrifuge technique was invented by Sven Palmqvist of Orrefors after a visit to Ravena in Italy.
