This handmade tea light holder is designed in the shape of an open lotus flower, with three rings of translucent capiz shell petals. 5" from tip to tip, 2" high. Shell edges and bases are black, giving each tea light holder a dramatic and clean contemporary look. Use with wax, battery-powered tea light, or small votive candle.
Story Behind the Art: This item was made in Pananque, Philippines under the guidance of Mr. Chito Navoa and his family. Single Capiz shells are extracted by hand and individually placed in the handcrafted metal frame of the Lotus Flower by craftsmen who then polish, paint and lacquer each individual piece until it glows with color and vibrancy. The Navoa family business supports many talented artists and craftsmen, giving them an opportunity to make a living.
