Handcrafted Ceramic Tealight Holder by Virginia Balistreri
Virginia Balistreri is a ceramic artist working from her studio in London. Originally from Florence, Virginia completed training in fine art in Italy, before relocating to the UK. Virginia throws each item she crafts on a potter's wheel, and finishes them using glazes she makes herself - to her own 'recipes'! She enjoys creating a mixture of both functional and non-functional pieces, and strives to "give life to ceramics".
"Ceramics are made for us, to be used and lived, to be a part of our life." Virginia Balistreri
This beautiful tealight holder, hand thrown on a potter's wheel, is finished in a creamy soft white glaze, with tiny speckles of brown. The clay is finely thrown, resulting in a delicate finish and feel. The intricate cut-out holes that run across the tealight holder form a pretty pattern, which looks stunning when lit.
Dimensions approx. 7cm wide x 7cm high
