Pierced Horn Hurricane
+ $ shipping surcharge
Come to (candle)light.
No two of these delicate candle holders are exactly alike—they’re hand-punched from sustainably sourced Ankole, a breed of cattle native to Africa that are known for their large and distinctive, beautifully colored horns (the horns are a food by-product). The random, geometric pattern of holes that stud the holder diffuses the candlelight for a unique, romantic-meets-disco-ball effect.

Details & Materials -
5" W x 8" H. Since this product is made from natural materials, size, shape, and color may vary slightly from what is pictured.
Care & Notes -
Wipe clean using a soft cloth as needed. Ensure that your lit candle is placed in the very center of the hurricane as to not cause either side of the inner wall to become over-heated by the flame. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
