ILLUMINATIONS

Inspired by Canada's 150th Anniversary in 2017, this
collection of contemporary silver candleholders, made
from heritage silver, honours Canadian women's creative
past and inspires their future.

THE GIFT OF SILVER


Two Canadian families donated the silver found in these candleholders. Before times and values changed, five generations used the  original metal in the form of tea and coffee sets, serving dishes and cutlery. After learning that most of the silver had only scrap value, the families decided to make something beautiful from the metal that would reflect on Canadian women's past accomplishments in the arts and, in its modernity, inspire future achievements. Stimulated by this idea, between 2017 and 2018, fifteen renowned Canadian metalsmiths transformed the silver into new and contemporary candleholders. 

Each unique creation honours Canadian women's involvement in a particular art and includes a recognizable element from the original gift. Attached to each piece is a tiny silver monogram bearing the words: Women, Arts, Canada and the number 150, a reference to Canada's sesquicentennial.
