Prompted to create a lidded vessel using wheel-throwing techniques, I designed a three-part candleholder. The bottom section of the container serves as storage for matches or lighters. The middle component fits snugly over the first with a recessed area in the center to house a tea light candle. It is complete with a dome lid to snuff the flame of the candle and contain the object's contents until the candle is ready to be used again.

Pigments were hand-mixed into the clay body to create a custom colour. A combination of white clay as well as the blue grey stained clay were marbled to create the unique swirling pattern on the top of the vessel.
