Every handcrafted porcelain vase is filled with the highest quality mineral wax and premium cotton wicks, finished with a unique design with deep black hues and shimmering 10 carat gold.
Every vase is made of the highest quality porcelain and made here in Europe. As our name suggests, the porcelain vase has subtle molten characteristics as our brand name Smeldt derives from the Dutch and English verbs ‘smelten’ and ‘melting’. This gives every vase its unique shape with an outer rim so perfectly thin that the candlelight glows through. Together with the exquisite design with deep black hues and 10 carat gold and a luxurious perfume, this unique candle will indulge your surroundings with a precious, warm and sensual ambience.
The story behind the design: The Act of Balance:
The porcelain surface of the candle give stage to a delicate dance of plain circles and smooth lines. Fundamental shapes are precisely composed and aligned in perfect balance, whilst deep black hues and shimmering 10 carat gold leafs are giving contrast against the pure white porcelain. With these three equanimous ensembles we hope to radiate serenity, abundance and peace into your homes. Because sometimes the simplest things in life can be utterly beautiful!
