Aye Aye Cast Iron Single Candle Holder
Aye Aye! is a family of rugged, round and bold iron cast candle holders inspired by the time of adventure and discovery, when the enthusiasm of the Industrial Revolution revealed the world to travelers and fortune seekers.
The fleet is composed of four sizes – from a small tugboat with one funnel to a hefty steamship with four big ones. All navy-themed colors are available: red, blue, black and grey. Each funnel is designed to fit either a tea-light candle for cozy harbor light or a taper candle as a pillar of steam.
Dimensions: Width 4.76 inches (12 cm), Height: 1.37 inches (3.5 cm), Depth: 2.67 inches (6.8 cm)
Material: Powder coated cast iron.
Lead Time: 3-5 days. Ships from Lithuania.
Aye Aye! vessels can be combined in any size and number and create various themes that will be easy to adjust to different happenings and backgrounds. One narrow piece will look pleasant on a window sill and distract the solitude. Aligned in a row the pieces will resemble a naval fleet, lighting a fire within. Scattered on a dining table the vessels will seem to sail into an archipelago of plates sparking good mood for conversation. Because of its shape and mental connections Aye Aye! family feels dynamic (although it doesn’t float!).
Drawing its inspiration from the Industrial Revolution, the Aye Aye! family is iron cast and powder coated to achieve its saturated color. Additional space around the candles acts as an extra safe-zone. A ship is a safe island in an ocean and Aye Aye! is a safe place for a fire at home. Being cast iron, the vessels are quite heavy, making them stable and hard to flip (though not on water where they sink like rocks). Each vessel is a bold design item simple enough not to distract.
The Aye Aye! fleet revokes nostalgia like a candle holder should. Combined with the beloved marine theme, the feeling grows stronger. As a result Aye Aye! is a universally appealing design item which, through personalized selection of shapes, colors and combinations, can be tailored for individual taste and lifestyle.
