Candlestick with a white body and blue base.
From the White Collection by Duck Ceramics comes this fabulous little candlestick – perfect for bringing a pop of colour and warmth to your dining table. Each candlestick has been created using stained blue porcelain for the base, while the rest has been left white to really show the beauty and simplicity of the material. Every piece has been sanded twice, giving the unglazed exterior a super smooth finish, making for an incredibly tactile piece. With an opening diameter of 2cm, this is the perfect size for a standard dinner candle, and as the interior of the candlestick has been glazed, making it able to hold liquids, it could also be used as a reed diffuser. Lovely on its own, this would also be great grouped together with other colourways to create a colourful display for your table or sideboard.

The technique I use is called slip casting. Commercially, this process is used with machines to reproduce identical copies of one design, churning out hundreds of ‘perfect’ duplicates. There is something satisfying about imitating the machine – but with the ability to make every product individual. This piece has been created using stained porcelain for the base, while the rest has been kept white to really show the beauty and simplicity of this material. Simplicity and function are at the core of the work I make; each piece has been designed to be used and loved every day.
