I came across this really nice looking wooden candle holder in the shape of a solar cross. The workmanship looks solid and it’s made of pine wood. It’s a nice large size too, 17,5 cm. I thought it would look beautiful on a shrine. The artist also has a swastika shaped candle holder also made of pine, a bit smaller, 10,5 cm.
Then slightly unrelated but I also came across this shop – Ceramystery. They are creating everyday clay ceramics some of which have solar symbols on them and remind me of archaeological finds of ancient cultures.
That’s a beautiful cross candleholder Laura! I think its very symbolic to have the light burning in the middle like that.
And that ceramystery shop is such a fun! Really nice way of bringing the ancient decoration motifs into the everyday use. I am reading that they even use an ancient Slavic technique of “milk firing” that gives the ceramics a natural water proof qualities. I really like their fruit strainer – very pretty and practical too.
@lucia, that’s really nice they’re also using an ancient technique to make the ceramics, on top of incorporating ancient solar symbology on them. It’s actually a fantastic idea – to create similar ceramics to the ancients and similar symbology, even exactly the same decorative motifs.
