The atmospheric effect of candles floating on water is absolutely lovely; the impact would prove to be even more charming with the use of these Dot Boat Candleholders. Made from ceramic, the delightful decoration has been designed based on the form of a paper folding technique that comes to resemble a sailboat.

Design Dot mimicked the origami hull of the little watercraft with the idea that the candle itself would act as the mainsail. A blue, green, yellow or white wax luminary could be placed inside of it, taking a pyramidal shape for stability.

The Dot Boat Candleholders can be lit and gently set down on the surface of bathtubs, pools, ponds and lakes. They create a romantic ambiance with a flicker of youthful lightheartedness to strike a great mood.
