Discipline: Material

This product is a candle which uses – instead of a conventional wick – a non-burnable glass wick. This glass wick swims due to inner porosities on the surface of the wax and can move freely. The wick is produced by sintering techniques and if necessary subsequent cutting. Its shape can to a large extend be determined arbitrarily. This allows a design of the number and shape of the flames. Conventional wax can be used. The wick is reusable.
