About this item: What once were molds used for making piloncillo (brown sugar cones similar in taste to molasses), today they become fabulous candleholders. Gabriela Avella upcycles the galvanized iron cups as container candles, setting four on a sturdy pinewood block. Painted red with a rustic, weathered appearance, the candleholder rests on a wrought iron base. Zafra refers to the process through which sugar canes are harvested and burned in order to obtain piloncillo.

About our Artist: 'I'm Gabriela Calderon Avella. The love of Mexican crafts has always run through my family. Once, I found some half-finished wooden crosses in the workshop and, because I liked painting, I asked my uncle if I could finish them. It was then that I started to work with wood. I love the history behind each object. There is strength in restoring what were once everyday objects and giving them a place in the contemporary world. My dream is to showcase a modern Mexican identity through cultural elements which I feel are being lost.'...
