Product Description

Candle feeling overdressed? Go simple and chic with our CIOTTOLO candle holder. It holds votive or round pillars (sold separately). Its ergonomic shape holds candle firmly in place while protecting surfaces from drips. Steady bottom helps prevent slippage from polished surfaces. The rich texture of limestone and natural patina finish make it truly unique and refined home décor accessory.

Each CIOTTOLO candle holder is handcrafted by knowledgeable artisans of Salento, made with natural limestone and free of solvents and other harmful substances.

This item makes part of the collection Mi piace by Artefare, the evolution of art and design expressed in Lecce limestone. This stone (in local dialect leccisu) is a kind of marly limestone spread throughout the province of Lecce (South-eastern-most Italy) and known for its easy of processing and particular expressive performance.

Massimiliano De Giovanni, a sculptor and designer from this south-eastern peninsular extension of the Apulia region, has been working local limestone for almost twenty years. Using artisan techniques, the local artist was able to make the most of the quality and versatility of Lecce limestone while creating this eclectic collection of unique, entirely handmade lamps and furnishing solutions.
