Steampunk Industrial Decor. Apocalyptic Candle Holder. Cut end from an industrial roller, found nut.

Apocalyptic Blue, 2011
Reclaimed Industrial Functional Art
Approx 5" Tall
5.5 " Diameter

I made this candle holder by cutting the end off of an industrial 'roller' type pipe. At the scrap yard I found a bunch of 5ft long 'tubes' that were part of a big machine to level ground?...I've made kitchen utensil holders and vases from the cut pipe part and when I had the ends left I finally realized what cool candle holders they would make.

I have painted the entire piece with rust converter which stops the rust (unless of course you let it get wet outside repeatedly) and attached a nut to the top for the candle to sit in. I would tear off some aluminum foil to stuff in there to keep wax from gunking the middle up as well as to make a nice secure spot for the candle to rest in. It's a snug fit to begin with and you dont have to use the foil but I do suggest you do that. I have cut reclaimed aluminum to bit the bottom to keep your furniture from getting scratched up.

Please make sure you do not leave candles unattended and always use the glass votive when burning candles in this holder.

*this pieceweighs about 7 pounds, its heavy and I will ship it parcel post. I can combine shipping and always refund via paypal after sent.

Frequently asked questions about PaulaArt

PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU LIVE IN ALASKA OR HAWAII prior to purchase as shipping may need to be edited on items that do not fit into flat rate/priority boxes. (failure to do so may end up in a cancelled order)

I refund overcharges regardless of the method used as calculated shipping is often a bit 'off' on multiple orders. Don't hesitate to ask what fedex rates are if you see something you really want but are aghast at estimates usps rates!
Keep in mind that just because many of my pieces are heavy metal, things can still break if dropped on the floor. I nut and bolt objects, epoxy them and weld. (even heat welded objects can break if hit just right) I take great care when shipping to protect your art through transit. I am not responsible for what happens to it after you get it! If a pet or child knocks something over and it crashes to the ground and breaks it does not reflect poor craftmanship on my end! Also, keep in mind that I am working with found materials that are aged and in many cases pretty rusted ~ if you leave them outside you can expect more rust over time due to humidity/wetness. If using indoors keep away from sink areas or where water is present.
If over time you notice any rust forming that doesn't bode well with you, GENTLY sand the area and spray or brush on an oil based varnish/polyurethane. Heavily rusted pieces,kitchen & jewelry holders are usually painted and/or varnished twice.
For orders returned to me because you do not like/want the item or failed to read listing details / didn't get quantity you thought you would or notice flaws in photos I will refund you once I have received the order in the same package/condition less shipping of original order. You are responsible for shipping fees back to me with a tracking #.

For orders returned to me because of failure to pick up package due to not wanting to pay duty/custom taxes (if applicable) or for any other reason such as incorrect address/outdated address etc, I will refund for the cost of the item less 15% and less original shipping fee that you paid. I can resend the item (in the states only) to the correct address if you want to pay for shipping again.
Wholesale buyers please convo me if you would like to discuss a bulk order as I offer discounts on orders incrementally.
