seriously big tea lights

These bad boys are about twice the size of your ordinary tea light. They're not called 'maxi' for nothing!
At the recent Niche market, a local ceramicist stopped by the stall and asked me about creating candles to go with her handmade ceramic light shades. She dropped one off the second day and I have to say, I was really taken with it - enough to pay her there and then just so I could keep it!

After tossing a few options around - we decided on keeping it simple and went with the larger tea lights. We have left these ones un-fragranced, but I can see making some up with citronella for outside use.
I think they look pretty good and they suit the light shades really well. I can't wait to try one out!

Wow! They are gorgeous... I like the fact that they are rustic yet would suit all sorts of interiors. Would like to know more! Cathy
