Description

It is a mystery :)
Some people like surprises and so do we!

It was my husband's idea to offer a surprise gift box :)

So -
We are offering two options of our surprise combo box to choose from:
2 items box - a handmade ceramic candle holder + a handmade wax candle
or
3 items box - a handmade ceramic candle holder + a handmade wax candle + another SURPRISE

Inside you will find -
♥ A collectible small ceramic bowl (by VIBceramics).
Hand-built of natural clay, colored with lead-free glaze, twice-fired dishwasher-safe "stoneware" bowl.
♥ A colorful, lightly scented candle (by local artist).
A hand-crafted, lightly-scented candle, rated with a burn-time of 5-20 hours.
Optional (by choice on check out and for extra fee)-
♥ A surprise - a specially-selected decorative accent chosen to complement the candle and bowl combo.

Subscription box -
Please contact us in case you are interested in subscription box and for how many month, and we will return to you with the best offer.

The photos show samples of what was found in the box we shipped so far.

Here are some of the reviews we got:

"The saucer is so exquisite that I have it by itself, and then the candle by itself too -- so, I essentially got two for one. I love it so much. I chose a light rose colored candle, which has a lovely scent. Gorgeous addition. Definitely want more!" (Lisa H.)

"The candle smells good and seems like it will last a long time. The bowl was so much more beautiful than what I saw in the photos. There was even a surprise in the box! Totally worth it!" (Sandra H.)

"Once my package arrived, the first thing I noticed was how well wrapped each piece was. There’s definitely no need to worry about anything breaking during shipping from Israel to the US. Inside the box was a small ceramic bowl, a floating touch-of-musk scented candle, and a bonus – a lovely handcrafted Hamsa!
Seeing the bowl I was reminded of the sea in both the coloring and the texture. Inside the smooth, shiny surface brings to mind the shallows of a deep blue sea where you can catch an occasional glimpse of sand through the sparkling water. And once the candle is gone, it can be used as all sorts of things ranging from a jewelry dish to a condiment holder! The candle has a light, almost spicy musky scent that is quite pleasant, and it glows a warm, golden color when lit. It looks fabulous with the ceramic bowl! As a bonus I got a lovely, hand-crafted ceramic Hamsa ornament! I am thrilled with what I received! Each piece is uniquely beautiful, and clearly shows the care that Vered puts into everything she makes. I definitely recommend looking into everything VIBceramics offers." (Aliana)

"After a very long day, I came home to find my candle had been delivered. The candle smells wonderful and the little dish is beautiful, and they even included a special gift all the way from Israel! A little vacation in a box! Made my day!" (Carol B.)

"I loved it. The pink and white combination creates a serene and peaceful atmosphere. The lavender floral scent added to the ambiance of the room without overpowering it. The little bag of treasure was a fun bonus that was claimed by my son. I did love the look of the shells and sea glass together with the candle and candle holder. It is an excellent choice for those that want a unique subscription offering ceramics and candles from Israel. It also makes a wonderful gift!" (Anna P.)

Creating handmade ceramics is a bit like making homemade cookies :)
I knead & flatten clay using a rolling pin. I measure, cut & shape each piece by hand (slab technic).
After drying the fragile clay pieces go into a 1st kiln-firing that makes them strong (Bisque).
In my designs I use lead-free food-safe glazes, leaving the outside unglazed for a rustic style, that combines the natural clay matt color with the shiny glaze.
The 2nd kiln-firing is at a high temperature of 1200°C, for stoneware durable ceramic ware, that are microwave, oven & dishwasher safe.
Yeah! Finely ready!
Opening the kiln is always exciting "How did it come out?
Each item is unique with its own character & beauty.
Like my mother used to say: "Patience pays!"
