ABOUT : This beautiful sandscape oil burner / wax melter by Julija Pustovrh is made using a mix of recycled clays and Scottish sand from remote coasts in Scottish Islands and Highlands. These burners are made in one piece from stoneware clay and left unglazed to preserve the natural colour of marbled clay and its texture. The dip on the top is glazed on the inside to make it easier to clean the oils or wax.
'Over the past decade I visited many remote corners of Scotland. From each of these special places, I brought back small (or large) jars of sand. These captured memories are often my inspiration and mark my deep connection to the seascape. I keep them on display in my studio to bring the beauty of nature into my creative space. Since 2019, I started to use sand from my collection directly in my work. I mix selected sand with different clays to give each piece a unique texture and varied speckled effects. The layered appearance of clay and sand combinations also adds a topography-like colouring to my work - creating imaginary sandscapes.'
SIZE : Height 10cm, Diameter 9cm, Volume of the dip at top aprox. 15ml (Every piece is handmade and unique so may vary)
HANDMADE BY : Julija Pustovrh - Every piece is made by hand in her studio in Edinburgh, Scotland
