Round Alabaster Votives
Please join the wait list for this product.
Artisans in Egypt use alabaster hewn from mountains in the Luxor area to hand craft these creamy-hued votives. Sculpting chunks of multi-hued alabaster into perfectly smooth votives 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”.
Lit from within alabaster glows with soft, diffused, creamy light, unique to the stone.
Use with our Greentree Beeswax Votives.
Sold as a pair.
Note: Intended for use as a candle holder only. Does not hold water.
10 years ago, Danish native Malou Lenskjold visited her cousins Ellen and Henrik Raven who lived in the Siwa Oasis in the Sahara Desert. Inspired by local handcrafts and materials in the region, Malou, Ellen, and Henrik launched their family-based company, Sirocco in 2010 and introduced Egyptian made products to the Danish market. Working with local artisans, Sirocco designs and creates a wide range of furniture and accessories from natural materials including salt, alabaster, copper, stone, wool, and cotton. All products are made using ancient handcrafting traditions that have been handed down from generation-to-generation.

These alabaster holders are gorgeous. Not only is the stone itself beautiful, but the light that shines through when holding a lit candle is so incredible charming. Can’t say enough good things, I want them everywhere!
I ordered these votives as a Christmas gift for a friend. Immediately after ordered I was notified that they were back ordered. The Bloomist staff immediately reached out, apologized for the confusion, and sent me another votive set paying the difference. Months later when the original votives were back in stock they were sent to me free of charge for the inconvenience. They now sit on my fireplace mantle and I can’t speak highly enough of my experience.
