The versatility of these candlestick holders is what makes them special. Want to set the mood with discrete tea lights? Turn the holder upside down, and you’ll find a space that perfectly holds a votive size candle. Hoping to make a statement on a dining room table or mantle? The other side holds elegantly tailored tapered candles. 

Ernest Miller is a ceramicist who harkens from the midwest and resides in MN. Inspiration for his work comes from field landscapes and architectural features such as barns found in the Midwest as starting points for ceramic vessels and glaze surfaces. Observations of source material may be abstracted using elements to complement functional or sculptural forms. Growing up on a farm in Southern Illinois instilled the virtues of utility, where the everyday use of a tool or piece of equipment was relied upon. He thinks of the role they fulfill with humanity. They are tools for storing or turning soil: as pottery is for eating and drinking. He feels a kinship with these rural icons. This has brought to appropriate line and surface of these influences into sculpture and pottery.

Pieces usually begin on the potter’s wheel and later hand altered and trimmed. Once dried and bisque fired they are coated with glaze and finish fired to 2,250 degrees Fahrenheit.
