wooden candleholder [ spalted tamarind ]
Dimensions: 2.5" x 2.5" x 2.5"
Species: tamarind (spalted)
These particular candleholders were made slightly larger than the usual 2" cubes, just to capture as much of the intricate spalting patterns as possible. the piece of wood was caught in the right stage to start drying in order to prevent any cracking or rotting. woodworkers often compare spalted wood to rare jewels in terms of its value - it is a depiction of the tree's history, even after its death. the refinement process, with enough luck, patience and skill, can then bring new life to the tree in the form of a useful object that will last forever.
Finely sanded to create a durable, smooth surface that is pleasant to touch and smell, while maintaining the natural color of the wood. we try to cut each cube with careful accuracy to draw attention to the detail in the wood’s unique cell structure and beautiful grain patterns.
Each cube comes with a lavender or grapefruit scented soy wax tealight candle.
