Designer Marie Dessuant reinterprets the classic brass and iron candle holders with a updated twist, infusing a balance of wood and ceramic to create a more modernized look.

Designed for 'Another Country,' the walking candle holder is reminiscent of the wooden ladles in front of Shinto shrines in Japan where people first cleanse themselves before entry. The design itself offers a calm relaxing feeling with the simplistic design of light polished wood and a white ceramic top, a candle snuffler. Shaped like a miniature pot, the holder can also be used as a container for trinkets, markers, pens and even some loose change. The white ceramic lids are great for concealing these items, keeping them hidden and room aesthetically appealing for visitors as well.
