Inspired by the undersea world, the forms of these votives recall the landscape of a coral reef. Handcrafted in unglazed white porcelain, their translucent quality allows a candle’s light to pass through the material itself to provide an overall glow, while the open ended shapes pass the light directly creating patterns and shadows. When unlit, the votives function as mini-sculptures with a surprising richness and complexity. Lotan is an award winning ceramic artist living in British Columbia, Canada.
To minimize carbon smoke markings we recommend the use of soy wax candles with the votives, or use LED tea lights.
