Illustration Friday: burning


My submission for Illustration Friday's "burning" is one of a pair of my tower candlesticks made from clay and handpainted glazes.

that is so good but I don't know what I'm looking at?!
At first I was drawn to the image as a painting then I read your blurb - is it a real candle that you've crafted?
I tried zooming in but it made it no clearer - either was that is a testament to how good this piece of art is
great work

Well!!!
This is ... w o n d e r f u l !
The tower so delicious but this photo is amazing. I suppose you used a bent paiting. The result is so sensual :-)

This is so evocative! The whole candle as lighthouse thing - the way you've made it and the way it's set up in this picture - a completely unique for IF!

where are we, val? that's my reaction. could be the desert or another planet. wherever, it strikes me that it is a guiding light. the light itself seems magical.
