Description

Measures: BIG
Male - 11 1/2" tall X 10 1/2" wide X 4" deep
Female - 12" tall X 6" wide X 3 1/2" deep

A very rare - and striking pair of sculptural clay candlesticks by Shelley and Michael Buonaiuto - from their - A Little Company - completed in 1989 while they were living in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Since 1975 - Shelley and Michael Buonaiuto have been creating sculptural works that capture the full emotions of life - from people experiencing life-changing events such as cancer treatments to the celebration of our differences of who we are as individuals that compose our beautiful world.

Shelley and Michael's works are wildly popular across all societal demographics and always provoke laughter and provide a levity while maintaining a tenderness much needed in certain circumstances. I laugh every time I view these two figures - because it's as if the male figure is pleading with the female figurine and she simply - has no interest. Full of life and expression their sculptures help create an artful home.

These are made with an oil-based clay and were hand-painted in their studio.

They are both signed and dated on the inside at the bottom and both are in pristine condition with no chips - cracks - crazing or wear to glaze.
