Florence Makes - Vintage Map Candle Cover
This beautiful handcrafted candle cover is sure to light up the home of any keen traveller, and evoke memories of favourite journeys.
Handmade from hundreds of hand formed pyramids crafted from vintage Ordnance Survey maps, this particular candle cover features maps of Devon.
Sustainability is at the heart of each Florence Makes product and the love of the thought that something which has become a little obsolete, such as a vintage Ordnance Survey map can be crafted into something beautiful for your home and have a new, repurposed, lease of life.
The candle cover is comprised of a heat resistant plastic and also comes with a small glass votive to hold a tealight candle (see image 3).
To clean the outer surface of the shade simply dust using a soft cloth or feather duster.

Florence is a Leeds based designer/maker. She originally trained in ceramics but found more joy in creating the paper test pieces. As a result she primarily works in paper, utilising old rail tickets and outdated Ordinance Survey maps. She is currently exploring the theme of repetition in the Curious Commodities Collection. The potential that repetition can bestow on an item is fascinating, the most rudimentary of objects can evolve into something grandiose, something which far exceeds its previous status. It transforms the insignificant and the overlooked.
These items are just a small selection of Florence's work available for sale in the gallery - do get in touch if you'd like more info or images of the other pieces available - simply email email@example.com
