This beautifully simple hand-turned wooden candlestick holder is a welcome addition to any tablescape, whether for a celebratory supper or daily mealtimes.
Made from solid British chestnut, the design for this candlestick is based on a traditional raised pie mould, but the paired back design and natural feel will suit rustic and modern interiors alike.
Hand-turned ash finished in lemon oil which maintains the pale matt hue of the wood.
- height 8cm, diameter 6cm
- central hole is 2.2cm to fit a standard dinner candle
- if using a smaller sized candle, melt a little bit of wax on the base of the candle and place in your candlestick - once sets it holds firm.
Selwyn House is formed by Sean Best and Ellie Smalls, who met studying Fine Art at Leeds Arts University.
Always drawn to making things, Sean bought a second-hand lathe and began teaching himself woodturning. Combining their creative talents, Sean & Ellie began to create small-batch handmade serveware & homeware from the best British-grown timbers they could get their hands on.
All the wood used for Selwyn House pieces is sourced as locally as possible to the workshop and is from trees which have grown in Britain. Most wood is bought from small independent sawmills, who either manage woodland around them or buy directly from local tree surgeons. The wood is milled and air-dried at these sawmills for a minimum of 18 months before it even comes to the workshop.
Working in small batches means they are able to source more unusual and characterful pieces of timber to work with and adapt designs to make the most of the wood.
All Selwyn House pieces are designed to be functional as well as beautiful.
