Flux Candle Holder

2011
Epoxy Resin, Thermochromic Resin, Walnut

A set of candle holders that gently show the passage of time. Fabricated in color-changing resin that reacts to the candle flame.

An exploration of material processes and capabilities via a look into physics. Emphasis is placed on the tea candle’s physical behaviors of both heat and light to create a dynamic experience.

When the candle is lit, the thermochromic housing slowly begins to change from an opaque black to a translucent white. The flame then provides a soft glow through the candle holder and gently flickers until the flame is put out.
