Love this


The delicate silhouettes of Cow Parsley seed heads with beautifully transluscent small blue butterflies fluttering around them are depicted on this unique candle holder.

This candle holder is created using the old photographic process of Cyanotype. A light sensitive solution is applied to a delicate handmade paper, a large format negative laid on then exposed to sunlight, the solution is then rinsed off and the paper dried, fixing the image. To make these candle holders the paper is then applied to glass. The thinness of the paper allows the light to shine through the image.

Gift box available to order in another listing.

8cm diameter, 9cm height. Tea light included

Please note each candle holder is unique and hand-made to order. Due to the nature of the Cyanotype process the blues may vary slightly.
