These candles are distinguished by their extremely shiny finish, achieved by hand by artisans who are able to create a contemporary avant-garde product through the application of long-standing techniques.
Each candle is first dyed by immersing it in a special opaque wax bath. After at least 24 hours, the candle is immersed a second time in a natural cellulose-based varnish which is allowed to completely dry for up to six days, contrary to industrial candles that instead permit packaging of the sphere after merely twenty minutes.
Graziani never employs the use of ovens to accelerate this process; rather, they believe that a slow and natural drying system guarantees an excellent end result.
Diameter: 150 mm (~6") Burn time: 100 hours
About the Brand
As witnesses to the strong bond with our origins, the Meloria candles derive their name from one of the historical symbols of the city of Livorno, the “Torre delle Meloria” (Tower of the Meloria).
