Modelling sconces - Depa Masih

As sconces did not exist and simple crude chandeliers where in use I have decided to modify my design to suit the Church. Some sort of wall lighting is needed to create ambient lighting and atmosphere. Part sconce part torch my design will be wall mounted with round cylinder support candle wax with wick will be contained in the cylinder with glass surrounding to protect. The sconces are modified designs and I have researched lighting in the 11th/12th century and decided to go with my own adaptation....

I will mode with cone base and cylinder base see which is suited. Combination of shapes. pipes, cones, cylinders - extruding, using non-deformers and bend tools to bend iron. I will have to decrease the divisions to make it look more rustic and wrought iron. Simple point light used to show effect.

Old Chuch So Far - Stephen Pender

Hey just wondered what you thought of the 12th century church so far. Obviously I've just added some texture on so that each part stands out more.
If you all could let me know your opinions it would be appreciated.
