What candles are recommended?

For all our products we recommend using a dripless candle. A dripless candle is designed not to drip wax when burned properly. This will ensure no residue, wax, staining or discolouring of the product.

Are Candles included?

All our Candle holders are sold without Candles.

What Materials are used?

Copper: Untreated, pure copper piping is used to make all our candle holders. Over time the copper will discolour giving the product a more raw and industrial look. The copper can be cleaned to restore its original shine and colour.

Concrete: We mix our concrete with various other binders to ensure a smooth, sturdy and strong candle holder. All our products are handmade and each piece will have it’s own unique concrete finish. As concrete forms air bubbles, you may notice very small cosmetic imperfections in the bases, which we believe only add to it’s industrial look. Some slight discoloration may take place over time due to the nature of the material. We do protect and seal ALL concrete products with a matt protection, however we recommend keeping them out of direct sunlight.

After care for my product?

We have treated the copper with a protective coating to keep it’s lustre, however over time due to the nature of the material some discolouring may occur giving the product a more raw industrial look.  You can use a copper polish to restore some shine. Try to avoid over touching the copper.
