SNUG Candlestick

Snug candle holders by Sanna Völker are handmade by stonemasons who have mastered their craft for four generations, dating back to 1880. All pieces are made from natural stone leftovers, some up to 500 million years old, handpicked by the designer herself from a quarry located in a small mountain village in the province of Barcelona. Snug is a small, self produced project that celebrates local craft, quality material and emotional value. The essence of the product is the material itself, expressed through a minimalist design. Stone is created and shaped by history, through shifting continents, seas and earthquakes. Some tell their story through banded layers, others through fossils. And it is here, in their sheer variation, that Snug finds its beauty.

The two candles are fixed on a stone body, and the "binding" brought by the material itself conveys a rough and delicate feeling. Snug tells a story about craftsmanship, sustainability and transparency, which is hidden behind the work and has the same aesthetics as the work.
