This wonderful candle holder was thrown on a pottery wheel using stoneware clay. After which I hand carved all the little leaf designs. My hand sculpted leaves and roses were then added. After a bisque fire I glazed the piece with a combination of pink, teal, green, grayish blue and purple glazes, then fired it again. When a candle is burning, the light will shine through the carved leaf design throwing leaf shadows all over your walls. The candle holder measures approx. 5 1/4" tall x 6 1/2" across top and will hold anything from a tealight to a jar candle up to 4" across. Most of my pieces are one of a kind pieces of art and this is no exception. The close up photo shows the colors best. Please keep in mind that colors show up differently on different monitors. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Thanks for looking!!
