Description

A simple and beautiful ceramic stoneware candlestick.

I threw this on my wheel and then decorated it with a blue slip. It was fired to bisque and then dipped with a transparent glaze before being fired to 1220C stoneware.

Approximately
Height: 8 cm Width: 5.5cm Weight: 146g
It's an ideal gift to give at a Christening or Baptism celebration or the birth of a new baby boy.

All my pieces are signed with the initials REJM. My parents gave me a long name!

(Candle and card not included.)
(I often use a bit of bluetac to hold the candle securely in place within the candlestick. I can be a bit generous on the cup size.)

Inspiration

Each time one of my children were Christened they were given a candle as part of the service. The priest would then tell me to light the candle for a little while on their birthdays. I didn't. They stayed in a draw. One day I decided it was time to get them out but no candlestick seemed appropriate so I made them one each. Now my Godchildren have them as well. I would like to share the opportunity of your special children having a candlestick too.
