Ring Off Fire / candle

Ring Off Fire
Ring Off Fire

The idea is to make the handling with stick candles safer by using an elegant porcelain candle ring.The ring is placed on the candles and are variable in their position. A fireproof silicone lip inside the ring prevents slipping. Thus, the ring holds a candle with a diameter of 19mm to 24mm. Once the candle has burned deep enough into the ring, the flame will suffocate due to lack of oxygen and the candle goes out. The ring is made of refractory translucent porcelain. Shortly before the flame is extinguished, a play of light can be seen above the candle ring. The fire prevention represents the greatest benefit
