Candle sticks and holidays: Hanukkah menora.

Two of the most used objects of almost any indoors event are candles and candle stick. We use them everywhere, either it's a holiday like New Years Eve, birthday or Hanukkah or a special event like a birthday or a marriage proposal.
In this post I will deal with Hanukkiah, a nine-branched candelabrum lit during the eight-day of Hanukkah. One candle for each day of the holiday, while the ninth one - Shamash - is used to lit the other candles.

When creating/using a Hannukiya you should that it should be Kosher, which means all candles should be leveled to one straight line. Shamash is the only candle that sticks out; it should stand a bit higher than the others.

Although when you design, I guess there are no limits to it.

Here are some of my sketches.









Have a great and tasty holiday.
