Little Joseph by Maxim Velcovsky

Spooky, bodiless head candle holders by Maxim Velčovský:

“Little Joseph is a hand-painted, porcelain candle holder. We can’t decide if he’s sinister or sweet. Part of that will certainly depend on what you decide to do with his hair. Use dripless candles if you’d like to keep him bald, otherwise, give him pure white locks, beeswax locks, or hair in several shades of the rainbow.”

Made in the Czech Republic.

4X4 Ceramic Cube

I’m not a huge fan of an overly olfactory experience, but I think this is perfect for anyone who is.

“It’s an incense burner. It’s an ashtray. It can hold a taper candle, or a tea light. It’s the four-in-one cube that serves four different functions depending on what side is up. Available in matte black or glossy white, this is a cleverly designed ceramic cube for those who cringe at clutter. Devised by Gualitiero Saachi and made in Italy for Bosa.”

I’m not a huge candle-fan, but I like the idea of fire and ice used together. You fill the mould with water and let it freeze, then you light the candle and as the ice melts, it drains neatly back into the mould.

’60 watt’ Votives by Walteria Living

Flickering candlelight in the form of a lightbulb. Pretty clever.

“votives in the form of large globe 60 watt light bulbs made out of thin cast white porcelain – allowing the small candle within to emit a warm, glowing light.
each votive comes with a votive holder, made to hold the object at an angle, allowing the threaded bulb base to act as both a handle and a vent.”

Includes 2 votives and 2 holders.

6”w x 5”d x 5″h : base – 3.5”d

Four Arm Candleholder

Several of these scattered randomly about the center of a table would make an extremely nice centerpiece, or one on it’s own would make a nice, simple accent.

“Finely crafted from polished stainless steel, this four arm candleholder evokes 1970’s minimalist sculpture. Expertly balanced, it adds a striking modern note to any table or credenza.”

7″D x 11.5″H

nordic light 7 arm candelabra

This candelabra folds up and fits nicely in a drawer. But it’s so nice you may just want to keep it out 365. Or maybe 364 so you can make use of the folding mechanism.

“We normally advise against playing with fire, but you won’t be able to resist reconfiguring this amazing candle holder over and over. Jonas Grundell’s flexible design allows for up to seven candles, arranged in linear, circular or asymmetric patterns—whatever suits your whim. Simply choose your display, then tighten the center screw to hold each arm in its place. Choose from four stately colors.”

If I was more of a candle person, I’d probably buy these pleasantly hefty candleholders. I’m quite fond of the high gloss finish (especially the white and black).

Gran’s Candlestick by Harry Allen

A plastic, colorful, traditional-style candlestick. Doesn’t seem like it would make sense, but it does. I heart Harry Allen.

“harry allen always cherished the silver candlesticks that were left to him by his grandmother. gran adored them and they appear in nearly all of the family’s early holiday photos. he loved to use them, and for a devout modernist, this caused some psychological conflict. after pondering the fact that everyone, even a modern designer like himself, responds to classical elegance, harry allen decided to embrace the conflict by copying them with color-infused plastic. through a material transformation, the classic form of gran’s candlesticks is available for the modern world to enjoy.”

available in: red, green, yellow, white, pink, blue
dimensions: 4.5″ x 14″ x 4.5″

“With Candlestick Maker, the actual object is a 4″ diameter surface from which a repository for a candle emerges. It can be placed on virtually any other object – an empty bottle of household cleaner, and elegant wine stem, a vase… literally anything!
