The Gry series is made of mouth blown glass which makes each piece unique.
The candleholder takes the light from the wick lit inside and turns it into a beautiful pattern projected onto the surface on which it stands. The inspiration for the shape comes from the trunk of trees. Starting from the ground you can see the beginning of the roots before turning more round in shape further up. Gry, meaning dawn in Danish, has different word associations, as it is also a play on the word “gro” which means “to grow”.
