Dias en Vela Candleholders - set of 8
Dias en vela candleholders - set of 8 pieces
Part of the Infinite Objects series, the Handcrafted Set of Dias en Vela Candleholders (Days Awakening) encapsulates the ritual of lighting a candle, which has always been an event where the body, space and mind are involved. For a long time, candles have accompanied the solitude and silence of those who watch, have protected the bodies of the deceased, have illuminated the darkness for the night owl and have marked the beginning of countless special moments.
With this series of objects, PopDots Studio seeks to strengthen a concept in which aesthetics evolve in conjunction with doing, in which the continuous trance of practice refines the technique and generates different unique and increasingly complex pieces, where the piece becomes an extension of the candle and the candle an extension of the piece.
This exploration focuses on conserving solid clay, to understand its behavior, flexibility, structure and balance; altering and monitoring its state of drying, to later sculpt it and finally bake it, taking care of the conservation of the natural essence of the clay.
The materials used are burned at different temperatures and glazed with Terra Sigillata techniques. Available as a set of 5, 8, 12 or 16, of varying sizes.
