  • the story

A Fiery Feline

For the cat lover with a sardonic sense of humor, this candle is gothic illumination with a dark secret. Hidden inside the cool geometric cat ("Kisa" in designer Thorunn Arnadottir's native Icelandic) candle is a stylized aluminum skeleton that's gradually revealed as the wax burns away. The candle's intrigue hinges on anticipation: waiting as the grinning skeletal cat emerges from its wax encasement. Along the way, the candle flame will peek through the skeleton's eyes, adding a wry dimension to this fickle feline. Made in China.

        for this price point it should include a stand. It was quite messy as it burned.

            I got this as a gift for my friend and I cannot wait to give it to her. The candle is larger than I pictured, which is great! I still think it could have been a little less expensive, but I know my friend is going to love this quirky product.

            I saw videos of this candle online and it looks like it needs something to catch the wax as it burns, so I got a little dish for it to sit it on. It looks great!

                  Just a cool spin on candles in general. It's almost exciting to light it up and watch what is uncovered next!

                    My sister is going to college for art and has a special bond with her cats. I saw this and thought it would be perfect for her. Shortly after I had decided that I would be purchasing it my other sister showed me that she had pinned it on her Christmas list. She was so happy and just sent us a picture of it lit.
