Peony Prototype

I have been meaning to make a peony shaped votive candle holder for over a year now.  The prototype came out of the kiln last night, and I'm thrilled with the result.

I've been intrigued by the Victorian's "language of flowers" for years, and found out that the peony is for "happiness in marriage".  I'm thinking it might make a great wedding gift.

This one was the prototype but there will definitely be more (mostly because I really really want to see a whole row of them lit along the center of my dining table).

 This is the side view. 

And the "work in progress" picture.

Being the prototype, this particular one won't be up in my etsy shopbut these hosta leaf ones were listed today.  Incidentally, hostas mean "devotion" in the language of flowers.


  1. Very pretty! I think of you every time I put on my watch. The dish I ordered holds it for me at night.

  2. So pretty. I think it would make a gorgeous wedding gift! Peonies are such a romantic flower, you've captured it perfectly.
