Wheel-thrown handmade candle with match pocket and skull design, unscented beeswax from a small farm in California. Delicious smelling. Each candle is handmade - the measurements are approximate and will vary slightly from candle to candle.
Matches are strike anywhere and can be lit by the textured area above the pocket.
Easily refillable! Keep those candle vases out of the landfills with this guy. Go to the "How To" highlight on my instagram (buttonsbones) for a quick/easy tutorial on refilling.
All of my glazes are lead-free and food-safe. Most are my own recipe.
Priced based on size and type of wax.
• I am a small batch potter. All of my items are handmade one at a time. Each one will vary slightly.
• The bottom, and any part of the item that needs to touch the kiln shelf when firing, will be unglazed. Glaze can act as a strong adhesive. If glaze is touching anything when it melts, it will stick to that thing forever.
o If an item has more than one piece, they were most likely fired together, for this reason, the areas on the item that are touching will not be glazed (i.e., lid and rim).
• Slight glaze variations are normal. The glaze I use fires between 2200* and 2500*F, depending on the item. Glaze will melt and move when firing. You will see this movement in the piece after the fact. Additionally, I hand-dip everything. Drips and other unique marks made by the glaze will differ from piece to piece and may vary from the one photographed. This is totally normal.
• I love a handmade look. I do not strive for absolute perfection or a commercially made look. All of my photos are high resolution – please feel free to zoom in on each piece. Go crazy.
• Do not hesitate to message me with any questions about an item. I will respond quickly. Online shopping for handmade items can be tricky – I welcome and love all questions (I also love to hear from pottery lovers and potters).
