A closer look at Bayham

A short candlestick (designed to fit a regular taper candle, like Forster) handmade in the UK by potter Rebecca Williams. Created from strong and practical stoneware with a matte, speckled, off-white glaze, this is the most understated of designs that’ll elevate the everyday with a true sense of the maker.

Pairing it with a candle

If you’d like to use your Bayham candlestick holder with one of our candles, the Forster Dinner Candle will fit perfectly.

The clay

Stoneware is the best choice for everyday ceramics that see a lot of love and use, as it’s less likely to chip than more delicate clays like china and earthenware.

The glaze

Rebecca mixes her own, vanilla-toned glaze that’s matte rather than glossy. It has a textural, speckled finish too, while the bottom edge is left unglazed so the natural character of the raw material is felt.

The making process

Working from her garden studio in West Sussex, Rebecca creates each of these candlesticks by hand. Compared to mould-made ceramics, it means that each one will be slightly different. You’ll spot brush marks from where the glaze was added by hand too.

Need to know
