Geometric Dot Candle Holder & Vase

Geometric Dot Candle Holder & Vase


Why have one thing when you can have two? Handcrafted to bring out it’s natural beauty this elegant and unusual product has a double identity. Vase by day, then switch out the included glass beaker and replace with a candle and let the light shine though.

Handcrafted in Uganda using upcycled Ankole cowhorn, which was previously discarded or burnt as part of the cattle industry. This vase was hand carved on a lathe, and then shaped and moulded at high temperatures. It was meticulously sanded, polished, and then sealed with a waterproof lacquer to ensure it's new function as a vase. 

Due to the considerable size of Ankole horns and their wide range of naturally occurring colours, these vases are crafted out of single pieces of horn and are truly one-of-a-kind. No two will ever be exactly alike. 

Each vase is individually hand-crafted by an artisan in a fair trade environment in Uganda and would make the perfect gift for the discerning interiors addict. Imperfections should be expected and simply add to the charm of your handmade good.
