Handcrafted Candle HolderRegular price £119.00
Artisanal handcrafted candle holder. These candle holders are made using early primitive ceramic techniques from the Rif region, dating back to 6000 BC. After drying, the pieces are covered with a whitish slip and decorated with a pattern of red and brown ocher. These pieces are made from clay found in the potters surroundings in the Rif Mountains. Decorative motifs are painted with a goat hair brush made by the potter to apply natural pigments. Variations are to be expected - each piece is fired in an open fire creating different results including smoke marks, making each piece one of a kind.
