Hand-thrown by Hannah Quigley from her pottery studio in Nottingham. This truly unique stoneware burner showcases a stunning 'crawl' glaze and removable dish; specifically designed to be used for Glass & Wick's soy wax melts. 

Please note,  although our images give a good indication as to the expected finish, this item is made entirely by hand and therefore the precise shape, size and glazing details may differ slightly between pieces.

How It's Made

Starting as a mere ball of stoneware clay, the clay is split into two pieces and delicately thrown by hand to form the body and the dish. 

Once thrown, the body is carved to create the arch, which will later form the entrance to the middle of the burner where the tea light will be housed. Due to the delicate size of the dish, this piece can't simply be thrown in the same way as a bowl and therefore, Hannah begins with a much larger dish, upside down on the wheel, and gradually shaves away ribbons of clay until it forms the perfect shape and size.

When dry, it's time for their first firing in the kiln. 

Known formally as Bisque firing, both pieces will spend 20 hours in 1000 degree heat! Once cooled, Hannah gently sands down each piece until smooth.

It's time for glazing.

This particular burner showcases two types of glaze. The first is a transparent glaze which is applied to the top half of the burner and to the inside of the dish, designed to accentuate the natural beauty of the clay. 

Hannah then applies the crawl glaze by dipping the bottom half of the burner into a bucket full of glaze. This glazing technique is particularly unique as it is actually drawn from a glazing fault, which causes the glaze to break away and create this incredibly beautiful, textured design which runs all the way through the lower half of the burner; truly special, as no two will ever be exactly alike.

The finishing touch...

Now glazed, it's time for a second firing which is even hotter than the first,  reaching 1260 degrees. This firing lasts an entire 24 hours! 

Once cooled, each burner receives a final quality check and a light sand before the piece is finally complete and ready to be enjoyed.

Bramble Row

This fragrance opens with fresh notes of blackberry leaves and blackcurrant buds, followed by a floral heart of rose, geranium, Muguet and bay. Rich notes of musks and sandalwood complete this fragrance. Tangled rows of wild bramble berries fill the air., before leading into a rich heart of bay leaf & geranium petals. Sophisticated & ravishing; a scent of delightful complexity.

Sicilian Lemon Grove

Sun soaked lemons cascade and tumble along the branches of citrus groves in Sicily. Vibrant, distinctively fresh and utterly tantalising.

Green Fig & Vetiver

The unmistakeable fragrance of freshly mowed grass drifting through the air, on a warm day. Earthy, clean & opulent; notes of Green Fig, Vetiver & Oakmoss will soothe you with fond memories of long, summer days.

Tuscan Vine Leaves

Lounging in the garden of a Tuscan retreat, absorbing the aromas of the Italian countryside. Crisp notes of freshly snipped tomato vines and ripened citrus fruits lead into a medley of mediterranean herbs, with base notes of earthy woods.

Wild Mint

Crushed wild mint mingles with a refreshing infusion of white tea. A revitalising blend that is perfect for cleansing the home with its delicate freshness.
