My Leaf Candle Lanterns compliment any dining experience and can also be used outdoors al fresco style. They are made using the impression from real leaves and glazed with a rustic green and white finish with a subtle ‘toasted’ speckling.
Firstly, I throw a cylinder of clay on the Potter’s Wheel. Then I press three foraged leaves into clay adding them to the surface of the cylinder with slip. Once the clay is ‘leather hard‘ I am able to cut slits into the cylinder to allow candle light through. These lanterns make a lovely addition to any dining experience as they emanate a subtle light and help create a calming atmosphere. Each candle lantern includes an aromatic candle inside ready for use.
I use stoneware clay fired to 1260 degrees, making each candle lantern durable for al fresco use.
Dimensions: typically 13 cm diameter x 19 cm tall from the base to the highest leaf point. Each piece is unique and slightly different depending on the type and positioning of the leaves.
Please always use glass or metal foil encased candles inside the lantern as this will prevent wax flooding the lantern base. This will not damage the product, but be difficult to remove for future use.
