- the story
Elegant and modest, these graceful candle snuffers by artist Shiloh Hunkapiller provide a graceful way to extinguish flames and prevent hot wax from blowing onto other surfaces. The bell-shaped snuffer is covered in a shower of tiny colored bubbles and dots, while the long minimalist handle offsets the vibrant color. As soot builds up inside the dome, even more beautiful colors become visible. Available in red, blue and green. Handmade in California. Sold individually.

- the maker
Shiloh Hunkapiller is a borosilicate glass artist who uses lampworking techniques (the manipulation and blowing of glass with the use of a torch) to create glass art ranging from marbles to vessels. His artwork is simple in color and form, yet elegant. He uses only the finest American borosilicate glass and kiln anneals all finished pieces to remove stress within the glass.
Shiloh began his artistic career as a woodworker specializing in the building of bamboo fly rods. Over the years, he has also acquired a great appreciation for and interest in glass art. Therefore, when he had the opportunity to learn glass blowing from fellow lampworkers he took advantage of it. Shiloh studied the art for approximately two years. Finding that glass blowing came naturally, he chose to pursue it full-time. His prior experience building bamboo fly rods has helped him while lampworking--both require patience and close attention to detail and accuracy. Over time, Shiloh has taken the knowledge taught to him and begun to develop his own unique techniques and style. He is continuously experimenting and pushing both the glass and himself.
