Artisans in Egypt use alabaster hewn from mountains in the Luxor area to hand craft these candleholders. Sculpting chunks of multi-hued alabaster into perfectly smooth candle holders is a painstaking, multi-step process. The cutting is done gradually over several days to ensure the fine crystals in the stone don’t break, and pieces are glued and wrapped in cotton at night to “rest”.
When lit from within, alabaster glows with soft, diffused, creamy light, unique to the stone. Variations in the stone make each candleholder truly one of a kind.
Available in Medium and Large. Cluster with our Round Alabaster Votives and Round Amber Alabaster Candleholder for a warm ambiance.
Note: Use with our Bloomist Beeswax Votives in addition to our Tea Light Candles by Greentree Home. These may be used to hold EcoFaux™ or Dried flowers. These do not hold water as it will seep out due to slight crazing inherent to alabaster.
