Faux Wax Candlestick

This will save you hours of patiently waiting for wax to drip. And, if an extra zero doesn’t send your wallet into hiding, turn your attention to the Vesuvius Candlestick (pictured above right) by Ted Muehling.

“This surreal candlestick appears to be dripping wax. However, upon closer examination it is made entirely of china (Earthenware.)”

20 x 12cm with a diameter of 8.5cm.
$35.00 CAD,

Pyreness Wood Block, 100 Matches

So freaking cool. I would be hesitant to actually use any of the matches since it seems as more of a sculptural type of thing, but that’s just me.

“To use just break a match off the block and scratch it along the block to light.”

Hermaphrodite Candle Set

I don’t know anyone who would spend $800 on a set of candles, but these certainly aren’t ordinary. I suppose if someone just absolutely loved them beyond belief the price wouldn’t matter so much.

Carousel Candles

I love these. There’s the magical feel, of course, but also they look so delicate as to be a rather special find. Click on the ‘buy it here’ link in order to see them in action.

“Our products are powered by the very candle. Using the heat from the candle it powers a rotary carousel to spin clockwise or anticlockwise. Carousel Candle is reuseable and brings a magic to any room in which it is used.”

Light Candle Holder

I don’t know why these are on sale, but holy, that’s great that they’re under the $50 mark. Again, so simple in design, with interesting materials to give a subtle style. I think they’d finish off a room quite nicely, or maybe they’d be the perfect present for one of your modernist friends?

“Arik Levy’s Light Candle Holder (2007) is a study in restraint, a distinct departure from its Victorian counterparts. An innovative use of materials, the candle holder comes either in white alabaster or black-textured aluminum. When a candle is lit, the alabaster holder captures the light, giving it a translucent quality. Paired together, the Light Candle Holders provide a satisfying material contrast to each other. Nicely weighted, they can be safely transported with one hand using the simple, sizable handle and accommodate standard taper candles (not included).”

T.A.E. 1879 Oil Lamp by Opossum Design

Sure, it’s expensive, but I usually don’t like oil lamps and this one completely changed my mind. I kind of love it.

“Glass hurricane lamp houses an upturned light bulb, ironically converted into oil lamp, suspended by dipping wires. A functional sculpture created in homage to Thomas Alvin Edison’s 1879 unveiling of the world’s first long-lasting electric lamp, which lasted 13.5 hours.”
