Poul Kjaerholm (Denmark, 1929-1980)

Pk101 candelabrum for Kold Christensen. 1956.

Brushed steel. Stamped ‘Denmark’. According to Michael Sheridan’s catalogue raisonne on Kjaerholm, the double-helix design of the PK101 illustrates Kjaerholm’s desire to emulate abstraction and economy of form found in the plant kingdom. The thin steel rods attached to the central tube exploit the high tensile strength of steel to reduce the rods to their minimum diameter. The rods were threaded at both ends in order to support a set of rings sized to fit the typical Danish candle commonly used at Christmas.

Together with this candelabrum we are including a set of small ball shaped candles with an extending section to fit the rings of the candelabrum – The candles are designed by Timo Sarpanava.

Full provenance can be made available for this item.

Manuel Marin (Spain, 1942-2007)

Abstract mobile table sculptures (a ‘Stabile’ to use Calder’s term)  Enamelled steel combined with metal wire.

Manuel Marin was an assistant to the English sculptor Henry Moore in the 1960s and later worked as an art restorer and gallery owner in New York. From around 1969 onward Marin became interested in mobiles as a form of sculpture and continued to produce them throughout his life until his death in 2007.

We have two sculptures available – Both sculptures are impressed with the artist’s name/signature.
