Dawn is a candle holder that in one piece embodies two different states of the same material.
During the manufacturing process the birch wood is exposed to heat which causes it to gradually transition into the more heat resistant charcoal. The natural tensions in the wood are also released making every piece unique.
The deep black color of the coal slowly fades into the pale, lean surface of the birch in a crossing of both color, tactile feel and material.
It may sound contradictory but woods ability to char makes it more fire resistant since charcoal is a lot less flammable than wood itself.
