Floral Ceramic Tumbler Candle from Iraq

Ceramic tumbler is inspired from Iznik pottery. Iznik, a town in western Anatolia or Modern Turkey, is an established center for traditional hand-painted ceramics. Iznik pottery is known for simple earthenware with cobalt blue hand-painted designs under a transparent clear glaze. This ceramic tumbler is a modern adaptation of Iznik pottery with vibrant floral patterns. The floral patterns are inspired from hanging gardens of ancient Mesopotamia that today includes Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran and Kuwait.

This hand-painted ceramic tumbler is hand-poured with slightly scented lavender wax by women artisans in Iraq. Tumbler measures 4.5" in height and 3.5" in width. The candle is provided with an all cotton wick. Ceramic candle is shipped with a bright colored box and is perfect for gifting. The ceramic tumbler can be used as a succulent pot or a decorative trinket bowl when the candle is finished. This is a handcrafted item, so product may vary slightly in color and craft from the images.
