In Scania, potatoes are called "pears" which means ground pears, and the French translation "pomme de terre" literally means "apples of the earth".
Potatoes can also be considered as gold nuggets from the soil.
This was the inspiration behind a collection of candlesticks for Stockholm's Gallery Pascale. The unique soft, organic shapes evoke memories when you dig deep into the earth in search of every edible treasure.
Each candlestick was created from the casting of a King Edward potato that is hand-picked by the designer - and produced by Rosengren's foundry in Limhamn. 2013
All candlesticks are unique and vary in shape.
