Do you recall that I made two copper “cups”, each with 4 pointy bits to them?  Well, I explored making them into sconces [wall brackets for candles] but the more successful outcomes were trying to mount them as goblets on stems made from various welding rods.  Worked on different foot design and whether to have thinner or thicker rod [needs latter otherwise they are prone to total meltdown while trying to weld]. So, here are some sample photos; I’ve not fully mounted the cups on the stems as I still think I might explore the sconce idea some more.  Moreover, it would probably make sense to use copper wire rather than the copper coated, mild steel welding rods, which have solder cores.

I think the stem with the flattened out feet works best [at the bottom of the set. I had thought of trying to make each like a claw but didn’t think that would easy or a practical end result .  I would welcome any comments you may have on which you prefer and why…. Vincent.
