By Anakarem, these delightful candleholders take the shape of an egg. The pair features cutout motifs depicting flowers and foliage. The Mexican artisan works in the time-honored barro negro, or black pottery tradition of Oaxaca, with techniques learned from her father. The clay is burnished to a sheen with a piece of quartz or obsidian, and fired in a wood-burning kiln, which transforms the natural color to a glossy black. Tealight candles sit in a circular dish, and the cutout motifs in the chimney create beautiful patterns of light.
Made in Oaxaca, Mexico.
