Zodiac Blackened Candleblock: No. 6, Taurus


This simple reclaimed wood candleblock is made from floor joists that once belonged to 1800s Philadelphia area houses. It is finished with decoupage extracted from old and dusty books whose beginning and end now coincide with that of the houses.

Each candleblock will vary in grain and indications of the wood’s prior use.
