Bird Boned

These boxy birdies carry a dark secret that can only be revealed as their wax melts away... Hidden inside each contemporary, geometric chick ("bibi" in designer Thorunn Arnadottir's native Icelandic) candle is a stylized aluminum skeleton that is exposed slowly as the wax burns away. As the macabre skeletal bird emerges from its wax encasement, the candle's flame will peek through the effigy's vacant eyes. An unconventional reminder that beauty is more than skin deep, the candle is sure to charm those with a sardonic sense of humor and a penchant for all things gothic. Made in China.

Thorunn Arnadottir is an Icelandic designer based in Reykjav and works with clients internationally. She graduated with an MA in Design Products at Royal College of Arts in London in 2011 and before that, she received her BA in Product Design at Iceland Academy of the Arts in Reykjavik in 2007.

Thorunn has exhibited in galleries all over the world, such as the V&A in London and the Triennale Design Museum in Milan. In 2013 she was selected as one of the 50 talents that are shaping the future by Icon Magazine.

      I gave this product as a gift and cannot wait to watch it burn down. It's so unique and a much better alternative to getting someone a basic candle as a gift.
