I thought these candles were products. They are not.

They are sculptures! The artist sells prints (20 x 30 cm at €150+vat on Smits’ website if your interested), but you can’t actually buy the product itself, or the ‘original’ I guess its called.

Well maybe you can, if you contact him and are super nice, but I imagine the price would be prohibitive if you wanted to use the candle, like I do.

So because this is art – not design- I will let the work speak for itself for a change, instead of gabbing on about what I like about these candles.

Suggested internal debate while scrolling down;

Art vs. Design …
