Tenebrae “Hearse,” Candle Holder
I was commission by my Church to create a candle holder for the Tenebrae Service Easter, 2011. This is what I created. There is a story behind the design. I wanted to pay tribute to The Trinity: GOD The FATHER, GOD The SON, and God The HOLY SPIRIT.
As you can see, the design is based on 3’s. There are 7 candles total representing the number of completion found throughout The Scriptures. There are 3 groups of candles: 1 on the left, 1 on the right, and 1 in the center. There are 3 sizes of holders on the left and on the right. There are 3 different species of wood used on the holders: Walnut, Oak, and Ash. There are 3 different species of wood used for the base: Walnut, Ash, and Oak. There are 3 components that make up the holder: the base, the candle holder, and the candle, and the riser are set 3 inches from the handles.
