    About The Artwork

    Entirely unique in design and form, James Shaw’s Baroque Bookends are a sculptural interior accent, created using waste plastics in an assortment of pastel hues. A lesson in functional art, each of Shaw’s unexpected creations brings out the beauty and excitement of the waste material, transforming it into something of lasting interest and value. Alluding to forms of the baroque era, this candlestick holder is hand-formed from recycled HDPE plastic using an extrusion gun of Shaw’s own design. With a unique, one-of-a-kind charm, use it to add intrigue to tablescapes and mantels alike.
