The Candelier by Takeshi Miyakawa in an Intricate Candle Creation

The Candelier by Takeshi Miyakawa is perhaps one of the more dangerous chandeliers to have been made in a long time. It might look like a classically decorative chandelier, but it is actually made entirely out of wax; hence its name 'Candelier,' which is a hybrid word between candle and chandelier.

Since the Candelier by Takeshi Miyakawa is made entirely out of wax, when it is lit, it will naturally drip hot wax onto whatever surface it is directly above, including potential people. Created for the Creatomatic show at New York's Eyebeam Gallery, it took ten weeks to cast and mold. It's a shame that it will only take a few hours for this intricate candle creation to melt away.
