                      This single large thistle candle holder is unique and is a funky interpretation of our cherished Scottish Thistle.

                      "We offer unique and innovative contemporary designs that have both style, sophistication and are guaranteed to stand out from the crowd.

                      Our designs feature art sculpture and jewellery using simple forms that are hand cut and produced in our Edinburgh based studio.

                      Aldona Juska has created a unique range of art out of scrap, steel and copper. Recently described in the Scotsman as the most promising undiscovered artist in Scotland she is building a following within the gallery and architectural design community. The mainstay of her work is botanical art from single stems to large complex pieces combined together to produce candelabras. She has been invited to exhibit in several European cities most recently Munich and Florence.

                      Aldona is Yorkshire born of Lithuanian descent and has spent most of her life either in Australia or America working as a librarian. However, living in Los Angeles she had opportunities to work with Mexican blacksmiths and discovered her passion for design and metal work. Upon returning to the UK she took a college course in creative metal art and started welding for herself in her studio in Edinburgh in 2002.

                      Aldona specializes in botanical art sculptures and jewellery. She produces genuinely innovative work that is affordable, colourful, fun and lively with movement and attitude. She achieves a delicacy of form and warmth of burnished colour and produces, highly unusual jewellery, interior accessories and free standing sculptures.”

                      Fire is used to produce the natural warm earth colours that create a unique patina for each piece. Slight variations in colour are to be expected. The copper is then lacquered.

                      Made by Aldona Juska, Edinburgh.
