A raw terracotta vessel filled with all natural beeswax.
It is thought that the first candles were developed by the Ancient Egyptians, who used rushlights or torches made by soaking the pithy core of reeds in melted animal fat.
Early Chinese were molded in paper tubes, using wax from an indigenous insect that was combined with seeds. In Japan, candles were made of wax extracted from tree nuts, while in India, candle wax was made by boiling the fruit of the cinnamon tree.
Tumbler: 5" tall and 5" wide

About Fredericks and Mae
Fredericks & Mae is the art/design team of Jolie Mae Signorile and Gabriel Fredericks Cohen. The two met through a shared love for materials - Fredericks & Mae started in the piles of feathers, thread, gold and paper that decorated their first studio in 2007. Their collaborative practice has since evolved into a series of objects for the home, garden, and sky. Fredericks & Mae is a material anthropology of objects with confused origins. Tools, games, and rituals trace arcs through history and across the earth - we follow these arcs: nose to the ground and mouths agape.
