This attractive candle stand, a modern design interpretation of a traditional craft comes to form at the skilled hands of Chitragars. Chitragars from Channapatna, a small town in the state of Karnataka in Southern India, are craftsmen who have been involved in creating lacquered wooden craft for nearly two centuries. A close grained and moderately hard wood called ‘Aale Mara’ is turned and honed into a flawlessly lacquered finish. Vegetable dyes are used to render the beautiful contrasting colors.The candle holder is made out of wood with a metal insert to make it easy to clean.
This piece is striking by itself and can also be used as a tea light or taper candle holder.
