Joe Reyes Apodaca, Candelabrum, 1966, raised and fabricated sterling silver, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc., 1977.118.6
Candelabrum is typical of Joe Apodaca’s work, which combines the delicacy of jewelry with the impact of sculpture. The undulating, four-sided sterling silver base supports six lights of varying heights that rise out of the fluid silver like the stems of flowers. Lighted candles heighten this effect, throwing multiple reflections off of the highly polished base and bringing the entire piece to life.
