Our Lunar Candle Bowl embodies the moon's cycle, with eight moon phases stamped into the metal along the inner edge of the bowl.
This piece was designed by Raina, hand forged out of mild steel by Ruben and finished with raw beeswax. Unique marks of character speak to both the ancient craft of blacksmithing and the nuances of each piece of metal. For this reason, each bowl is slightly different, embracing wabi-sabi, the Japanese aesthetic that celebrates imperfection.
A unique 6th anniversary gift (iron anniversary), 11th anniversary gift (steel anniversary), wedding gift or housewarming gift. This heirloom piece is solid and will stand strong for generation after generation.
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 one of the listing photos).
Ideas for bowl use:
-sacred object of ceremony, in your alter, near your yoga mat, in your hands.
-catching ashes from smudge
If you would like your Lunar Bowl personalized on the underside of the bowl, select the "number of characters" that fits your text and type your desired text into the "personalization for engraving" box above. We use 1/4" tall numbers and capital letters. "/", "-", "&", "+", "." and a heart shape are also options.
Candle, cactus and crystal in photos are not included.
