Shot Pot Candle by AUTHOR: the home of British-made luxury and unique home accessories and furniture

Regular price £27.50 Sale

Commissioned by AUTHOR for our own collection of contemporary furniture and accessories.

Please note that Myer is on a sabbatical currently and so we have no shot cups to produce these candles at the moment. These wonderful shot pot candles are a two for one item. Once you have burned your natural plant wax candle, give it a firm clean and reuse the shot cup. It is an everlasting and elegant piece that can live on long after the candle has burned. These candles have a burning time of 18 hours.

Two scents are available: Tranquil and Sanctuary. Tranquil is a calming blend of Lavender, Neroli and Sandalwood whereas Sanctuary is a restorative blend of Jasmine, Chamomile and Rosewood.

Select luxury gift wrapping in the BAG page for just £3.50 per gift or accessory ordered. We will wrap the gift beautifully in one of our luxury gift boxes with tissue paper, ribbon and seasonal decoration. We can also add a personalised message for you which you can provide in the ‘notes' section at checkout

  • or to make sure it burns beautifully:
    The first time you light your candle, remember to keep it alight for at least two hours, as this prevents the wax ‘tunnelling’. Trim wick to around 0.5cm before each burn, to stop the candle burning too quickly.
    Keep away from children, pets and soft furnishings. Once the candle has burned out, give the shot cup a firm clean.
Why we love this product

For when you’re burning the candle at both ends.

We love that this item is reusable. The talented skills of ceramist Myer Halliday and candle makers Wildheart Organics are combined to create this wonderful piece that not only soothes you with its scent but with its tactility.

Once you have eased your soul with the aromatherapy properties of the candle, it can be cleaned and used as a vessel for coffee, a chocolate pot, sauces or even a small posy, making it a truly timeless item. It will make you smile every time you cup the pot in your hands and take a slow sip.
