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.

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. Her multi-disciplinary work spans a host of different topics and techniques, and is driven by curiosity, experimentation and deep research into cultural origins and human interactions.

Really cool, perfect gift for a cat loving uncle.

This candle is taller and heavier than I was expecting. The wax is not cheap-looking crayon wax. The box has images indicating the surprise inside.

Well, what do you get that male cousin who seems to need...heck, I don't know what he needs. But this cat has whimsy and charm, and my teenage daughter almost ran off with it before I could send it to the intended recipient, so I call it a success.
