Beehive Candlestick


This timber is sourced from local communities and small suppliers.

Hand turned by Walk in the Park, in their Titirangi studio.

Size: diameter (at widest point) - 95mm, total height - 135mm.

Candle hole approx 21mm, inlaid with brass, please do not let the candle burn right down. This candlestick has been treated with chemical-free oils.

Urushi finish: Urushi is a traditional lacquer that comes from the sap of the Asian lacquer tree. This finishing makes the surface of objects very durable. Due to its high performance in preserving objects, it has been widely used for art works and food utensils in East Asia countries. The charming shiny and slick surface is made when it absorbs moisture from air during curing and its multiple layers and slow drying process make it very hard.


  • Care: After a while, if you feel the wood is starting to dry, please reapply oil to the surface, pure linseed, walnut, pure tung oil, and beeswax are recommended.
  • Do not leave in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time, this can cause discolouration.


Walk in the Park

Drawn to Walk In The Park for their sensibility to material, their work is homage to the variations of wood available in New Zealand. This tactile devotion extends into their desire to create products that are both beautiful and functional, blending the organic with the domestic. Walk In The Park is a pleasure to use, to hold and to simply admire. Sculptural and exquisitely produced, each piece is quiet in detail, yet brilliant in form.

Walk in the Park believe in a simple, honest approach to design where aesthetics and utility are intrinsic. Made in their woodturning studio in Titirangi, New Zealand, Sam and Jiho design and create sculptural and functional wooden objects.
