Japanese coloured candle & stand set

A box of 10 small dip-dyed Wa-rosoku (hand rolled candles), renowned for their steady burning and even flame. Made of rice bran wax, a hard yellow wax extracted from the otherwise wasted husk and germ of rice. The wicks are made of washi paper, rolled around a rush skewer, and the body is built up by rotating this in the right hand whilst the hot wax is smoothed about the shaft with the left — a rarely practiced traditional art known as kiro-tegake-seiho — before the top is shaped and the rush removed leaving a hollow core. 45mm Earth Colour candles, each lasting around 15 minutes, recommended for use during a rest break or meditation. Included in the set is a small, white-glazed ceramic candle stand with metal spike, for holding the candles in use.
