This candle began at my potter’s wheel with a white stoneware clay. It is decorated with a bright red slip painted in a band around its middle. By carving through the slip, the coiled design reveals the white clay beneath. The holder is finished with a clear glossy glaze to brighten and intensify the color.
The candle is an unscented, clean burning soy wax. Once emptied of the candle’s wax, the holder has a life beyond the candle for planting succulents or cacti, food, or even another candle!
Soy Wax Candle - Red Coils
I use non-toxic, lead free glazes that are food safe on all of my dinner and tableware. They are dishwasher, microwave and oven safe (when pre-heated with the oven as appropriate). Hand washing, however, is recommended.
