Malwina Kleparska

Big Black Candleholder for six candles

5 860 kr

The candleholder is handmade by Malwina Kleparska - a ceramic artist based in Gothenburg, Sweden. The candle holder is a one-of-a-kind piece, meaning it is not part of any bigger production.

In her practice, she uses traditional hand-building techniques, such as coiling, rolling, and pinching when making her functional sculptures. Her ceramic pieces are, for the most part, made out of stoneware clay, a hard and durable material. Every piece is made by hand and by leaving visible marks from the artists' fingertips.

CARE

If wax has dropped or run down on a candleholder, the best way of getting rid of it is by simply picking it off. If it has got stuck, a lighter may be used to “melt” it off. The black marks after the flame may be wiped with a cloth afterward. Pouring hot water is another way of solving the problem – but please be aware not to pour too hot water (do not boil it) all at once! Ceramics may crack if heated up too quickly.
