Inspired by shells and urchins

This gorgeous tea light candle holder has the appearance of a real urchin, making you question whether it is actual shell or ceramic. It is the desired effect from the maker as she wanted the design to look like a real oscillating urchin. These exquisite pieces are very thinly cast so they are delicate yet strong from being stoneware fired. The stoneware firing also makes the porcelain look translucent when a candle is lit inside of it, making the piece glow perfectly. 

The contrast between the optional 24 carat gold lustre dribble and the matt porcelain of the urchin adds to its eye-catching silhouette. The richness of the gold is exquisite and creates an extra level of sophistication to the piece.
