Spirit Candles

These spirits candles reveal a bronze sculpture as the wax around them melts away.

$30.00

Wax Poetic

Hidden inside these inconspicuous-looking white pillar candles is a cast iron sculpture that's only revealed as the wax burns away. While it may be tempting to hold a marathon candle burning session for a more immediate reveal, the candles' mysterious charm relies on patience: slowing down to reflect and savor each moment as the candle burns gradually and the figure, slowly but surely, emerges from its waxy encasement.

Available with your choice of Dance, Embrace, or Nurture sculptures formed by a lost-wax casting process, the unscented candles make an illuminating gift to celebrate a wedding, engagement, anniversary, or other milestone. And while the sculptures themselves may become blackened by smoke and flames as the candle burns around them, they can later be polished and kept as keepsakes once the wick reaches its end. Made in China.

Made from
wax, cast iron
Measurements
6" H x 3" dia.
Care
Dust with a damp cloth.
Notes
Never leave burning candles unattended or near flammable objects. Always place burn candles on a suitable holder or dish.
Each candle is estimated to burn for 20 hours.

JUST A HEADS UP!!
I got this gift for my husband. I thought it was a very unique idea. I wrote him a letter explaining how this candle was a lot like our love and an initial spark ended up revealing something I could have never expected. I imagined he would light the candle and with time he would be surprised to find the candle hiding the two figures holding one another in embrace. Well, the candle comes in a pouch and attached to the pouch is an explanation and picture of the candle with the figurines! He was still happy but the element of surprise that would have come the day the figurines began to reveal themselves is gone. I wish I would have known about this tag. If you're getting this as a gift to someone, make sure you take the tag off if you want them to be completely surprised. I let him open the package. : /

Other than that, it is a great gift. It is such an interesting idea, and very meaningful. The candle came today and so far it's just candle wax.

I thought this would be a great gift, and it was, until my mother tried to light the candle. It burned for about 15 minutes until the center of the candle sank in and the whole thing was useless.

Terribly disappointing. Tried to find her something cool and meaningful and then it was just a huge fail. will be trying to get my money back.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Spirit Candles:

    This was awful. The candle melted all over the candle holder it was it. It flowed like water, and burned so fast. I had assumed it would burn slowly to reveal the dancer inside over a long period of time. Instead it burned fast and uneven. Total waste of my money. I purchased two of them because my daughter was a dancer and I knew she would like the slow revealing of the dancer. But that did not happen, it was a complete disappointed. I would think twice before I ever purchase from uncommon goods again.

            My dad loves candles and art, so this made a great gift for him. I like how long it lasts and that you have a sculpture to keep afterward.

                          We gave this candle as a gift to our grandparents as a wedding gift. They have not burned it yet so I am not sure how that is yet. The candle didn't smell very strong
