Early Works in Wood

For Salisbury Artisans

Created in 1951, these rosewood candlesticks, made by Salisbury Artisans, Salisbury, Connecticut show Eva's early work in wood and feature her signature curves. These three preliminary candlesticks have not yet been cut off from their wood block base. When they stand together, they become an exquisite sculpture. Salisbury giftware pieces were introduced at the Akron Art Institute. Their distinctly feminine shapes foreshadow many of Eva's later designs.
