PyroPet Candle Company
Pyropet Candles are beautiful candles in geometric animal shapes. You can get deer, rabbits, cats and little chicks. I have the black kisa, and she's beautiful. They are quiet larger, and have a spooky secret: inside the candle, there are metal skeltons. According to the company, the idea came to Icelandic designer Thorunn Arnadottir one Christmas when she saw a forlorn Santa Claus candle with his head half melted away. She wondered how she could elevate this common-place ritual sacrifice into a true theatre of the macabre. Let me assure you, she was successful. For the first time, watching a candle melt out of shape is not daunting or disappointing, but rather an exciting prospect.
