MM Charred Candle holder
Designer: Maria Pita Guerreiro
MM Charred Candle holder is part of the collection MYCELIUM MILLENNIUM, designed by Maria Pita Guerreiro.

Each object serves to promote the use of Mycelium and its various material qualities. This candle holder was crafted in an attempt to highlight its fire-resistance by applying the Japanese wood charring process -Yakisugi.
