Glass Candle Tealight Holder
Fused Glass Candle Ornament and Tealight Holder
"All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light from a single candle" - St Francis of Assisi
After a pretty shocking, unexpected and frankly difficult 2020 I developed this little Candle ornament. This quote has been on my heart for some time and it felt right to make this encouraging little gift and include it in my range of gifts to offer comfort.
It speaks to me of a God who walks beside us, even in the valley, even when the season is dark around us. The hope we have in Jesus is a light to be found no matter what.
The candle glow is made by sprinkling powdered glass onto a clear sheet, using a stencil to create the flame in the centre. I then add a white candle and black wick before firing in the kiln. It is then attached to a clear glass tealight holder.
Each tealight holder comes with an A6 postcard with the quote printed on the front.
Measurements approx 10 x 6 x 5.5 cm
These candles are cut and powdered by hand and will have slight variations from the image shown.
I love to help you gift an item directly to a recipient. Just leave their address at the checkout. If you would like to leave a gift message I can print this on the back of the postcard shown in the photos.

Fused Glass Gifts designed to encourage and inspire!
Hi, I'm Amy, designer and maker at Orchard Art Glass.
I love to create fun and colourful glass pieces in my garden studio in Somerset. On my page you will find a variety of suncatchers, candle holders, ornaments and keepsake cards. Most of my pieces begin with a word, song or verse that sparks an idea for a piece. My hope is that these visual reminders will be an encouragement to you or provide a unique gift for you to bless someone with.
Glass is a beautiful medium in it's own right before I even begin the making process. It speaks to me often about our experience as created beings. God made us and said we were good and beautiful because we are His creation. We live in a fallen world and this causes us to become broken. It is through relationship with our Maker that we are formed, refined and ultimately made beautiful. God often takes the most broken and painful pieces of our lives and works a marvellously beautiful outcome.
In working with glass I see so many parallels as it is broken, crushed, ground, shaped and sifted before being fired at temperatures of up to 800 degrees. This forming and refining process creates a beautiful, shiny, smooth and unique piece.
My prayer is that my pieces will go into homes as a gentle and joyful reminder of the hope we have in relationship with a loving God.
