Stoneware candlestick by ceramicist Abbie La Rooy. Each candlestick is thrown on the wheel, then flipped upside down and pulled (traditional handle making technique) making each unique with a distinct character. The candlesticks are then left upside down to dry until they are stiff enough to hold their shape. The candlesticks are brushed with ‘terra sigillata’ made from clay Abbie finds and processes locally in Dumfries and Galloway. Terra sig is a type of clay slip where the smallest clay particles are syphoned off to create a highly refined surface with a sheen; almost like glaze.

The candlesticks vary in height but are all the same price. They look amazing in a group of two or more. Price is for a single candlestick.

The smaller ones are 30-32 cm tall and the taller ones are 33-37cm tall.
