Introducing the latest addition to our mindful candle collection at A House Like This - a limited edition ceramic candle, handcrafted by the talented Hertfordshire based ceramicist, Claire Downes of Silverceramics.
Here at A House Like This we are always looking for new and exciting ways to enhance the candle experience for our customers. That's why we've have teamed up with Claire Downes to create a unique and beautiful product that is sure to delight all candle lovers.
We've collaborated with Hertfordshire-based ceramicist, Claire Downes of Silverceramics, to create a limited edition candle that is sure to delight. Claire's passion for creating beautiful pieces with her hands is evident in her work, which features exposed clay, natural tones, and unique textures.
The inspiration behind the design of the vessel for the candle is evident in its simple, clean lines and sharp angles. The clay used for the vessel is flecked with iron, which gives it a raw, natural look. The interior of the vessel is glazed in a smoky matte black finish, which provides a striking contrast to the raw clay and white wax. For Claire, the best thing about being a ceramicist is the sense of calm that comes from sitting at the wheel and creating something beautiful. She believes that working with clay allows you to let go of the stresses of modern life and get into a zen-like state. Claire is passionate about creating functional and decorative pieces that are both beautiful and sustainable. She recycles every drip and scrap of clay, which ensures that nothing goes to waste.
Behind the scenes : The making process of the beautiful vessel from Claire's home studio in Hertfordshire
Each of the ceramic candles is handcrafted by Claire, using traditional techniques from her home studio. The result is a stunning, one-of-a-kind piece that is as functional as it is beautiful.
After Claire completed the production of the vessels they were shipped safely to AHLT HQ for them to be handpoured and turned into beautiful candles featuring our most loved scent.
FYGGE, the signature candle scent by A House Like This, is a warm and inviting fragrance that is perfect for creating a cozy and comfortable atmosphere in any home. The scent is inspired by the Danish concept of "hygge," which is all about creating a sense of warmth, coziness, and contentment.
The FYGGE scent featured in our limited edition ceramic candle with Silverceramics features a blend of warm vanilla, black fig and earthy cedarwood. These notes combine to create a rich and comforting aroma without overwhelming the senses. The fragrance is designed to be enjoyed throughout the day, from morning coffee to late-night relaxation.
Sustainability focus, recycle & Reuse
As you'll know by now we love creating eco conscious products that not only bring the promise of irresistible long-lasting scent but also serve multiple purposes and reduce waste as much as possible.
A House Like This has always been committed to sustainability, and this limited edition candle is no exception. The soy wax used in the candle is renewable and biodegradable, and the ceramic vessel can be reused once the candle has burned down. This means that you can continue to enjoy the beauty of the Silverceramics vessel, long after the candle has finished. Try repurposing it for drinks, a desk tidy, cosmetics store or even to house a small house plant.
Whether you are looking for a thoughtful gift for a loved one, or simply want to treat yourself to a luxurious new candle, the AHLT x Silverceramics limited edition ceramic candle is the perfect choice. With our collective commitment to great product design, performance and sustainability, this candle is sure to bring joy and comfort to any home. This is a very limited run so order yours today here!
