We Want to Get Ambient With These Groovy, Locally Made Candleholders

We’re a pretty satisfied bunch, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t covetous. Sometimes we see things out there that we just must have. Cool Things We Want is an archive of those earthly desires.

We want to set the mood with some of these cool candleholders, handmade by Vancouver-based, multi-disciplinary artist David Ullock, aka “Druvid”. (You may very well have already had a close encounter with his colourful abstract mural on the Boxcar patio.) Each candleholder is completely unique, inspired by nature and created out of reclaimed wood.

When last checked, Gastown boutique One of a Few was in possession of a handful of these sculptural beauties ($136 each), complete with beeswax candles from Kaslo, BC, as well as Main Street’s newly opened Nouvelle Nouvelle. For the alternatively inclined fragrance lover, oak wood incense holders are also available ($82-96 each).
