Aboriginal Emu Tealight Candle Holder by Kathleen Buzzacott
The designs in this collection were inspired by the artist's life in a remote aboriginal community. This design depicts the emus of Finniss Springs. The emu is a sacred bird for Aboriginal people and is the subject of many Dreamtime stories.
These gorgeous candle holders are hand-made from glass and a layer of clay then beautifully gift boxed with a story card inside. The clay allows the candle flame to illuminate through and radiate the magnificent colours of the Dreamtime designs.
A portion of each sale goes to the artist.
Priced at $29.95
