Banksia Votive Candle Holder

Banksia Votive Candle Holder
This beautiful, and most unusual, Banksia Votive Candle Holder is made from a Banksia Seed Pod. It is an artwork that will bring the joy of candle light into your life, without depleting our earth's resources. Banksia seed pods are a renewable resource; they are harvested without cutting down the tree, about like we harvest apples. Soy Wax, Glass, and Cotton Wick are also petroleum-free renewable resources.

Here is a wonderful gift that will be appreciated by everyone, that shows how much you care about the Earth!

I have turned this piece on a lathe, keeping part of the Banksia Seed Pod's natural exterior. I just love the contrast between that incredible (bizarre!) natural texture and my highly polished turned surfaces! Natural openings in the finished Candle Holder are where the seeds popped out of the Pod. In a dark room, when the Candle is lit, and the wax is completely melted, the candle flame glows in the seed holes. Delightful!

This Banksia Votive Candle Holder is 3 5/8" in diameter and 3" tall, including the candle.

A Banksia Pod is like an Australian "Pine Cone". Native only to the west coast of Australia, the Banksia genus is named for Sir Joseph Banks, the botanist on Captain Cooks Endeavor voyage in 1770. The tree blooms with spires of red and yellow flowers that mature into hard, solid, wooden seed pods. If you would like to see a picture of a Banksia Seed Pod, and read a bit more about them, please visit my website, cindydrozda.com.

Here's the link to my Banksia Information Page: http://www.cindydrozda.com/Assets/html/CollageLong/Banksia%20Pods.html

I am pleased to include with this Banksia Votive Candle Holder a high quality, unscented, hand-poured soy wax Votive Candle that is made in America by Way Out Wax of Vermont (wayoutwax.com). A re-useable glass cup holds the candle.

If you are into choices, you can choose between the uncented soy wax Votive by Way Out Wax, a "Peace" scented Votive by Tru Melange, or a pure Beeswax Votive by Bee Healthy Candles. Other scents might be available, too!

Although I make Votive Candle Holders like this one fairly often, each one has its own unique character and personality. No two Banksia Seed Pods are ever exactly the same! The images that you see here are of the actual piece that you will receive.

This piece is finished with a waterproof lacquer finish. It will keep its beauty for many years! To care for the wood, please wipe off water, and keep away from direct sunlight or temperature extremes.

A final note: Please use care around a lighted flame and burning candle! Please keep away from children, and never leave a burning candle unattended!

Thank you very much for your interest in my work!
