Icelandic design | Black clay & molten lava candleholders


Iceland is a kind of magic country, in my opinion, I like how designers get inspired not only by nature, but also use material found in nature for their creations. Baugar (Halos) is a series of sculptures by Guðný Hafsteinsdóttir. Consisting of three different sized rings made from coarse black clay and molten lava Baugar is a sculpture with a raw volcanic texture. The rings are carved out to hold candles which can be arranged within the rings by each liking.

Guðný Hafsteinsdóttir is a ceramist and designer. She was born in the Westman Islands and grew up in close quarters with the sea, the harbour, fishing boats, crags, black beaches and lava surroundings which has been a constant source of inspiration. During DesignMarch 2016 she presented her work at Epal

Those candyholders are mesmerizing! Don't know if they come with the moss, but it sure adds some ancient looks to these holders.
