Fire & Ice & Lava-Lamps

Icecandleholder Ever since the power outage have been particularly taken with candles. Saw this interesting holder designed by Mathew Jackson. Aptly named Thaw, the tealight flame is canistered in an actual ice cube. As the cube melts, the water drains back into the freezing unit! It would make a nice decoration for the holday season. (When the ice melts, it's time for guests to say goodnight?!)

The holder is designed by UK novelty manufacturing firm Mathmos. Its website is a bit Flash heavy so it is a bit hard to navigate at times, but muddle through. As the inventor of the Lava-lamp it has a great pedigree for offering borderline kitsch items with an edgy innovation.

Thanks neatorama!
