Description

Lovely lotus opens its capiz shell leaves and petals to the light. Capiz is the thin shell of a marine mollusk. First artisans wash and soak shells. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes and edged with metal wire. A finishing coat of varnish completes this labor-intensive process. Before glass windows became available in the Philippines, capiz was used for windows in houses.

Handcrafted capiz candleholder edged in wire holds one tea light.

  • Nice gift for a friend!

    This is a cute little votive holder - Not too big nor too small. But it is delicate so you want to take care not to bump nor drop it as its sides are made with shell. Its points can be slightly sharp so take care not to bump a soy votive tealight candle into them as it might puncture it. Suggestion:...

    This is a cute little votive holder - Not too big nor too small. But it is delicate so you want to take care not to bump nor drop it as its sides are made with shell. Its points can be slightly sharp so take care not to bump a soy votive tealight candle into them as it might puncture it. Suggestion: The candleholder in real life is a bit duller in luster than the photo so to jazz it up slightly I'd suggest buying a yellow tealight instead of white.
