Coral Candle Holder

$ 25.00

This unique coral candle holder is hand crafted out of oil drums in Haiti. The process begins when the oil drums are burned off to remove paint and other byproducts from previous use. Next Josnel and his studio artisans, hand cut the intricate coral pattern out of the flattened oil drum. Then he shapes the flat pattern into a cylinder using a series of hammers to achieve texture and additional design details. Finally, the piece is sanded, varnished, brushed, and varnished again to achieve the deep patina. The coral pattern casts amazing shadows on surrounding walls when a candle is burned inside.

Measures 5.5 inches deep, 3 inches wide

"I hope every customer knows that each piece they buy contributes to renewing hope in a community in Haiti."- Josnel Bruno, Haiti
