Candelabrum

  • Richard Horosko-Manderbach, Candelabrum, ca. 1975, iron, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase, 1975.153

Luce Center Label

Candelabrum is one in a series of works created from bent and hammered tubing. The iron “roping” that secures the arms to the stem reflects the artist’s interest in African metalwork. Richard Horosko-Manderbach uses a gas forge and oxyacetylene welding to fix the legs to the base. When the piece is completely built, it is wire brushed and rubbed with a mixture of beeswax and turpentine.
