Votive Candle Holder, "Leaf"
A beautiful votive candle holder, cast thinly in bone china, a translucent material that makes the holders glow when a little candle burns inside. The soft glow spreads a calm and beautiful atmosphere in any environment which makes for a great gift even for those difficult to buy something to.
Bone china is a very strong material so even though it’s really thin, the candle holder is actually very strong. The pattern is originally a leaf that's been pressed and photographed. After that, the image is screen printed, applied by hand and fired into the ceramic surface. Due to the hand made process, one votive can differ slightly from another in shape and how the pattern is applied. The votive holder should be washed with hot water and washing up liquid.
