Oxley tealight block
Our large ebonised oak Oxley tealight block can hold three candles. Its rough-hewn handmade shape and richly black finish make an attractive centrepiece for any festive table or mantlepiece.
Like all of our smaller items, the Oxley tealight block is crafted in the wood shop at HMP Warren Hill, a category C men’s prison close to the Hyrst studio on the Suffolk coast. Income paid by Hyrst to Warren Hill is used to train prisoners in new skills. The process of ebonisation, achieved using natural ingredients that react with the tannins in the oak, creates varied shades in the timber – no two pieces are the same. Please note: tealights not included.
