This candle bowl is hand forged out of mild steel by Ruben Irons, Artist Blacksmith and finished with raw beeswax. Unique marks of character speak to both the ancient craft of blacksmithing and the nuances of this particular piece of metal. For this reason, each bowl is slightly different, embracing wabi-sabi, the Japanese aesthetic that celebrates imperfection.
The bowl sits just under 2" tall with a roughly 5.75" diameter. The flattened bottom is about 2.5" in diameter, allowing for a stable base and a level spot for a 2.5" diameter pillar candle inside (as depicted in photos).
Let this bowl speak for itself as a sculptural piece on its own, in a cluster of a few or nest a candle inside. This bowl is solid and will stand strong for generation after generation.

"These bowls are nothing short of spectacular. I cannot praise them enough for their rustic, hand crafted appeal and durability. Customer service was really wonderful also." -Dorian Broadway
