POTTERY WEST Stoneware Dinner Candle Holder - Ochre


A ceramic candle holder for a standard dinner size candle, handmade in Sheffield by Pottery West. 

Thrown on the potter’s wheel in an iron-rich flecked stoneware, the candle holder is stamped on the base with Pottery West’s maker’s mark.  

It has been glazed in Ochre, a glaze named after one of its ingredients - iron ochre. Colours can vary from a warm caramel brown, orange, even a little purple when applied thickly. This is a glossy glaze but the rutile within creates a more semi-matte appearance in certain lights.

A pared back yet beautiful object for the home, this candle holder would also make a thoughtful gift for anyone who appreciates handmade, minimalist ceramics.


  • Dimensions: 4.5cm h x 10cm ø 
  • Made in England 
  • Materials: iron-rich flecked stoneware clay, glaze 

Ensure the candle is secured safely before lighting, and never leave a burning candle unattended.

Because this is a handmade piece, there may be slight variation in the dimensions specified in this listing and also subtle variation in the glaze between each piece.
