White Ash Taper Candleholder

$ 85

Thoughtfully hand-turned from a solid piece of pale white ash by Katherine Wesselman, this candleholder's simple yet elegant form that reveals the beautiful grain of the wood. This piece is one-of-a-kind, turned by hand on a lathe passed down to the artist by her father. Wesselman's attention to detail is clear in the design of the base which allows the form to float above the surface. Through clever design, she made a candle that practically floats!

- Sold individually as a single candleholder
- Hand-turned from solid white ash wood, smooth sanded finish
- The base is signed by the artist
- 2-1/8" diameter x 3.75" high, fits standard tapers

Why Linen
  • Linen is wonderful and luxurious. It’s one of the easiest fabrics to care for.
  • The smooth and long fibers of linen help resist dirt and stains.
  • It gets better with age and softens the more it is washed.
  • Linen absorbs water quickly and dries quickly.
  • It is durable and strong, lint-free and resistant to pilling.
  • Linen can withstand high temperatures.
  • It is inherently eco-friendly. Flax has a short growing cycle, is quickly renewable, and every part of the plant is used.
Linen Wash and Care Instructions
Tea Towels
  • Machine wash in cool to warm water.
  • Use a mild detergent, no bleach.
  • Line dry or tumble dry on low heat; remove while still damp.
  • Ironing is optional. Some people prefer linen crisp and flat, others like it soft and natural.
  • Dry thoroughly before storing.
  • We encourage you to use your tea towels daily and enjoy the patina that comes with age!
  • Machine wash in cool to warm water.
  • Use a mild detergent, no bleach.
  • Hang to dry, or tumble dry on low heat and remove while slightly damp. There is very little to no shrinkage when washed this way.
  • For natural or colored linen, it’s best not to hang in bright sunlight to avoid fading.
  • Ironing is optional, and much easier to do while your apron is still damp. Use a hot iron with plenty of steam or a spray of water.
  • Store in a dry, well-ventilated area. Well-cared for linen aprons will last for generations.


  • Remove stains with soap and water while still fresh, before they dry.
  • Pre-soaking in mild detergent is very effective in lifting stains.
  • Never use chlorine bleach which may damage the fibers.
