MoMA Exclusive: Add a new twist to your dinner parties with these top-quality candles. Made using the lacquer technique, an artisan method that creates a polished finish that resembles glass, these candles will make a statement on your table. Cereria Graziani, the makers of the Twist Candles, is one of the last manufacturers in Italy that still uses this technique, and have been making candles since 1805. Burn time is approximately five hours.
The extremely reflective finish of these Twist Candles is achieved through a handmade process by Cereria Graziani’s artisans. Each candle is initially dyed by immersing it in a special wax bath for 24 hours. The candle is then immersed in a natural cellulose-based varnish which takes up to six days to dry. Graziani doesn't use ovens to accelerate this process; rather, the company believes that a slow and natural drying system guarantees an excellent product. Each Twist Candle in this set of four measures 7.5”h.
