Helene was the name I gave the voluptuous showgirl with a tower of plumage gracing her beautiful head. “in squares” alludes to the technique of making this particular candlestick: I rolled out a slab of clay that was to be my sheet of paper to sketch on. When I got home I cut out the images and pieced them together with a sculpted head and foot.
