Ever caught from the corner of your eye a splendid bit of wonder that a melted down candle’s form had turned to. You have stared at it every day even as you burned it but only in that moment did you see what had become of its melted self and thought that that is the way you would like keep it forever and ever. Or, for a little less romanticism, ever see that candle that you’ve been burning on your kitchen counter and praying that your pain in the ass cat doesn’t decided to go skittering across to knock it over and set your home ablaze and thought that its dripping melted wax had managed to create something that looked cool as shit and wished you could keep it just like that forever. And then you figure what’s the point since you can’t use it for anything else other than burning — or collecting dust.
Well, Ted Muehling’s Vesuvious Candlestick has captured that melty moment in unglazed white porcelain. And for a mere $300 you can now hold dear that dust collecting object forever and quite possibly find some use for it. So go ahead and burn that candle.
