Anna Mae Candlesticks / Candleholders Cast Brushed Bronze, USA Jordan Mozer 2003

About

Set of Anna Mae candlesticks / candleholders, cast in recycled red-bronze, brushed Chicago, USA, 2003/2019. Jordan Mozer (b. 1958), Collection of the artist. Sizes vary up to 3" x 4" x 13.5" tall (7.6cm x 10 cm x 34 cm tall). Process and materials Made in Chicago. Hand carved maple sculptures were cast in 95% recycled red-bronze. The castings were polished and brushed. Story This set of cast-bronze AnnaMae candlesticks were created from sculptures hand-carved by by the artist in 2003 for AnnaMae Restaurant in Biloxi, Mississippi at the MGM/Mirage Beau Rivage Resort Hotel. They were re-imagined as candlesticks and presented to his wife on her birthday. Anna Mae was a Japanese-American restaurant in Biloxi, Mississippi at the Beau Rivage Resort Hotel. The restaurant drowned in Hurricane Katrina. The design was inspired by the serendipity of the homonyms "anime" (big-eyed Japanese cartoon/manga characters) and "Anna Mae" (the heartbreaker "Little Anna Mae" from a Mississippi Muddy Waters blues song). The sculptures were inspired by Asian curly willow trees: in Japan, willows symbolize grace and femininity... The artist's mother, mother-in-law, and first born daughter all share the middle name Mae... Small batch studio furnishings Mozer Studios LLC handcrafts all of their small batch products. They are never mass produced. We invite our patrons to embrace the nuanced irregularities of form, surface and finish as evidence of that handwork, defining each piece as one of a kind. Credits Photos of the sets of sit candlesticks were created by Tom Rossiter. Doug Snower shot the AnnaMae restaurant. The Oak Street Gallery shot is by Ms. Archer. The watercolor painting is artist's portrait of AnnaMae.
