As sconces did not exist and simple crude chandeliers where in use I have decided to modify my design to suit the Church. Some sort of wall lighting is needed to create ambient lighting and atmosphere. Part sconce part torch my design will be wall mounted with round cylinder support candle wax with wick will be contained in the cylinder with glass surrounding to protect. The sconces are modified designs and I have researched lighting in the 11th/12th century and decided to go with my own adaptation....
I will mode with cone base and cylinder base see which is suited. Combination of shapes. pipes, cones, cylinders - extruding, using non-deformers and bend tools to bend iron. I will have to decrease the divisions to make it look more rustic and wrought iron. Simple point light used to show effect.
