Karve Design makes a line of candles accented by thin, hand-carved plywood that they call Deewa Candles. The elegant, subtle style of these beauties is stunning.

Hardwood with candles = burning?
It doesnt say but presumably these can only be used with the dummy candles that are lights and not real flames as appear to have been shown on this piccy?
Beautiful design though the casing is, it could so easily be dangerous! lol
Thanks for your comment Lyn.
That is a very good observation, but the thin plywood has been dipped in fire retardant liquid. The ‘eye’ shape of the candle holder is also fixed and so does not get in the way of the naked flame.
Standard candle safety should also be applied with any naked flame.
- Extinguish all candles when leaving the room or going to sleep.
- Keep candles away from items that can catch fire (e.g. clothing, books, paper, curtains, etc).
- Don’t place lit candles in windows, where blinds and curtains can close over them.
- Don’t place lit candles in draughty places as it causes uneven burning.
- Place candle holders on a sturdy, uncluttered surface and do not use candles in places where the could be knocked over by children or pets.
- Keep candles and open flames away from flammable liquids.
- Keep candle wicks trimmed to one-quarter inch and extinguish taper and pillar candles when they get within two inches of the holder or decoritive material.
- Candles should be extinguished before the last half-inch of wax starts to melt.
