Small Azalea Etched Tealight
Handmade fusion tealight with intricate etched surface details and screen printed enamel transfer prints creating distinctive surface pattern details and qualities.
Inspired by the fusion of traditional patterns and styles from elements of Victorian floor tile patterns and Eastern floral prints.
Perfect as a tealight holder due to the translucency of the ceramic material used enables the pattern details to be accentuated when lit up.
Please note there may be a slight variation in the colour shown due to different firings and print runs
