Creative & Cool Candles: From Projectors to Votive Candle Holders

Here are a range of cool candles and unique votive candle holders.

The Bravit Molecular Candle

The Bravit is designed by Christoph van Bommel. The wax base is relatively thin and the one wick spreads out to form molecular structures allowing the candle to burn with 5 flames at a time. Is it chaos, beauty, or both?

From his site:

“The soul of the candle appears: the wick, hidden and charmless – stands out and draws attention: Will it burn? What path will it take? What will be left?”
