Every spring, millions of canola flowers bloom at a huge field by the Nousaku foundry. The shape of the candle holder is informed by the flower. The brass candle holder is uncolored and left in its original form so that the color will change and patina over time. Each piece is handmade, hand casted and hand finished by techniques passed down over 400 years in Takaoka, Toyama prefecture, Japan. Nanohana candles are made from rapeseed oil and wicks made of washi paper hand-rolled by master craftsmen of Takazawa Candle in Ishikawa prefecture. When the candle is lit, wax does not run down the side easily and the candle does not produce smoke when putting out the flame. The soft flickering of candlelight during meditation creates a relaxing atmosphere and adds a sense of warmth.
