Kehra Glass candleholders by Tamara Aladin. Priced as a pair.
Aladin’s work often draws upon the many histories of Finland. I think she uses form and pattern to create a narrative of her homeland - it’s peoples and cultures, in her best, most personal work.
Design has the power to recover history, just like lost memories and this design revives the patterns of Finnish folk art.
One of the candleholders has the original Riihimäen gold label - which establishes it as a late 1960s production piece.
In production: 1968-76.
