Distortion Candlestick

While this has quite a bit of wait time, it’s an excellent price for a great little conversation piece. Rapid prototyping is really enabling designers to make some interesting stuff, as is the case with this candlestick. A traditional candlestick form is warped through 3D rendering, then rapid prototyped and cast.

Available for pre-order.

Column Candle

Drippy wax might be annoying to some, but this candle creates an interesting piece as it melts.

Unlike a typical candle, this column candle can simply be placed as an interior decor with its detailed and antique look. Even after usage, the candle will only burn 1/3 of the top, creating an original piece as wax will melt over to drip down the column base.

Volcanoes (Vessels)

The artist Emogayu creates each vessel by hand, so no two are exactly alike.

Emogayu, who is originally from Japan, hand-crafted a series of vases and bowls for us called ‘Volcanoes’; Inspired by the natural energy of flowing lava and the way it captures a moment in time forever. Her hopes are that whoever owns her work will not treat them as ‘objects’ but will allow the energy of their space to flow freely through them. Volcanoes have a number of uses whether for displaying fresh cut flowers, climbing plants, holding a votive candle or for containing your small keepsakes. Each piece is truly one of a kind.
