From Water to Fire

Some people become accountants, others teachers, but Jeff Henderson was called to his profession by something the rest of us have probably walked right past: Rocks. He sources these naturally rounded, one-of-a-kind stones from coastal New England, and breathes new purpose into them, like with his stunning match striker. Swipe a strike-anywhere match against the coastal accent to light your favorite candle or to start a cozy fire. It makes a thoughtful gift for sea-craving friends and anyone you know who'd rather be at the beach. Handmade in Maine.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Exactly what I expected


I read some of the negative reviews and bought it anyway. It is exactly what it says it is and looks exactly as pictured. "Strike Anywhere" matches work perfectly. Previous buyers who had trouble may have purchased "Strike on Box" matches. The packaging is similar, so read the label. Also, don't complain about it not coming with matches. It says it doesn't and it's illegal to ship them.





Adorable! But should have come with matches


This was the perfect gift!


You just strike the match on the stone and then light the candle. The stone holds matches as well and looks great on the coffee table.



Works Well...


This item works well. You definitely must use the matches with the phosphorus tip. This is the only way it will light when you strike the rock. Pleasantly surprised that it WORKS! :)



match stone


doesn't work at all. Won't light a single match. Lousey purchase .



Doesn't work


Don't buy this! It doesn't work!

Brownsburg, IN


Very cute but does not work


Purchased a box of strike anywhere matches but we could not get any of the matches to work. She loved the idea of the gift.

Gibsonville, NC


Does not work, and no matches


i'm so sad, is there a local store where I can exchange the rock for something more useful ?

Chantilly, VA

Nice vase maybe? Does NOT light a match!


Won't light a match and I've tried four different kinds!



I would buy this again if next time it ships correctly


It was meant for match holder and striker. But the hole is too deep for the matches. We also purchased three different types of matches and it doesn't work striking the match against the stone. No sparkle, no fire.
