These natural candleholder vases are handmade in Kenya. They are hand carved out of stone and then sanded until smooth. Since these show the natural colors of the stone, some color variations should be expected. One can often see shades of cream, gray, pink, and brown in the design. These feature an inner ledge to hold standard taper candles (the opening is approximately ⅞ inches wide).These are also designed to hold faux flowers as the center hole drops down within 1 inch of the base. For decorative use only with dried flowers or botanicals; not intended to hold water.

Meet the Artisan
Venture Imports cares about the artisan’s families and are against child labor. But more than just that, they want all children to be able to get an education and to have time to play! The artisans are able to work from home, or they can bring their children to the cooperative to play while their mothers work. All of the artisan partner’s children are in school—something which is not always the case in a community where school fees are often prohibitive to many parents.
