Postcard of Candlestick.
© National Museums Scotland


This clear glass candlestick was designed by Andries D. Copier in 1958 and made in 1965 by Koninklijke Nederlandsche Glasfabriek of Leerdam in the Netherlands.

The candlestick has a thin stem with a solid sphere in the middle.

Andreas Copier, born in 1901, joined the Leerdam glassworks in 1914 and continued to design and produce avant-garde works at the factory until he was in his eighties. Some of the early pioneers of the American Studio Glass movement came to study with him in the late 1960s, as did British artists of the following generation. He invented a number of new techniques and was one of the first to experiment with non-functional free blown shapes as early as 1958.
