Handmade candle holder from bronze for OVO Things' Slim or Birthday Candles (hole diameter 0,6 cm) in dark, less polished finish.
As handmade objects the holders may differ slightly in colour or shape. We believe you will enjoy your own. Bronze is left untreated and over time it can oxidize and gain patina resulting in less shiny surface and darker colour. You can polish it away to have the holder shiny again or leave it as it is as a result of natural process.
Height 3 cm, diameter 3,3 cm, hole diameter 0,6 cm (for Slim, Christmas or Birthday Candles).
The old ways require patience. Making bronze caneles is a demanding process and not easy to handle, involves as much of mastery as hard labour. To say in short, caneles are crafted in an old technique of casting when a molten metal is pored into a mould (containing a beautiful "tree" of caneles from so called wax), replacing the wax which melts and pours out. Similar to their ceramic cousins, bronze caneles undergo many steps including firing, cooling, washing, polishing and triming. In small batches, one at a time in this beautiful old craft where raw materials meet fundamental elements like fire and water.
