Michelangelo DiDonato is the creator of CommuniCandle sculptures.  While at work in the family’s steel mill, Michelangelo came across some old style nails. The straight nails were rusty and cold with sharp edges. As he fingered through the pile of nails he cut himself on one of the sharp edges. While watching the blood flow from his finger, an idea surged within.

The nails began to take shape in his mind’s eye. He saw figures reaching out to one another, touching, coming together with the light of love.

Michelangelo created the first sculpture as a gift for his wife, as a way of recommitting his love for her. The nails used to create the CommuniCandle sculptures are reminders that while love may be sharp at times, it is what binds two lives together. No matter how bleak the darkness, the light of one candle can illuminate our way, enliven our spirits, inspire, comfort and unite us.  http://bindinglightproducts.com
