Part of the brief was to design a pair of tall ceremonial candlesticks to stand either side of the Tabernacle steps, plus some smaller for use on the Altar. Therefore we developed an elegant geometrical design that has a family resemblance to the stone Pedestal. Although normally only a pair of candles is used on the Altar, for special occasions more are needed - known as the 'Big Six'
Several scale models were made and then a prototype in wood, before the design was approved. At this point we decided to have the final candlesticks cast in solid brass.

Many months were spent looking for a foundry capable of producing these pieces to the required standard, Eventually, after a site visit to the very impressive FSE Foundry in Essex, we knew we had found the right craftsmen for the job.
