Bronze MMediumr Candle
Dimensions: 15 × 12 cm
Artuklu Art candle from Mardin, Hasankeyf - 12-13th century
The original can be found in Turkish and Islamic Works Museum, Istanbul.
This candle is made of “botanical wax”: an all-natural, clear-burning raw material with marbling, extracted from trees (elaeis guineensis) that grow in warm climates of South East and South America.
Due to its completely organic nature, a botanical candle burns extremely clean. Additionally, since botanical wax is harder than paraffin wax, its burning time is longer.
Candle making, initially a hobby, dating back to 1967, developed in time, turned into professional production in 1975. From special collections to daily use candles, lanterns to unique decorative products, today we continue to produce handcrafted candles for the local and the world markets with our early days’ passion intact.
