Mid-range porcelain, ceramic pigments, shiny semi-transparent milky glaze
This candle holder is best fit with long SKINNY candles. They have organic shape and the whole is not standard. I suggest to melt a little bit of the candle base to secure it on the candle holder.
To clean wax drips you can put the candle holder in a bowl and pour boiling water from the kettle over it. Be careful to thermal shock, I suggest to pre-warm the candler holder with hot water from the tap before putting boiling water over it. Handmade ceramics are fragile by nature, they should be treated with the same care as your fanciest wine glasses.
Please note that the tips of the leafs on top are extra fragile and spiky, it is likely that the tips can break. This is a sculptural piece and not the most functionnal design. The dimensions given are approximate and can vary slightly. My pieces are functional works of art, and I favor artistic complexity over technical perfection. I produce the imagery on my pieces with multiple successive layers of colored porcelain, stoneware and minerals, so it is normal to perceive textures, small holes or separations between colors, or micro cracks in the frosting. Minimal flaws are to be expected. If there are more significant flaws that affect the function, the piece will be classified as ‘’seconds’’ and will be 50% off. If the flaw affects the beauty of the piece it will be marked as second and be 20% or 30% off. Please look at the images carefully as the imperfections are not hidden.
