Inspiration
For inspiration, Michael turned to the day lillies that bloom in abundance at Snow Farm each July, when he can often be found teaching in the Snow Farm Summer Program for high school students.   Michael hand-cut each lilly leaf and assembled each candlestick, including hammering the back of the leaves for texture and brushing the steel with brass for an extraordinary colored surface. No two are exactly alike and every set is gorgeous.
