Alabaster Candle Holder
Please join the wait list for this variant.
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”.
Lit from within alabaster glows with soft, diffused, creamy light, unique to the stone.
Available in Medium and Large.
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.
