Candle with a skeleton

Candles have always provided atmosphere for social activities – ambiance, low flickering light, a subtle scent and a nice jar. But they were always cast in a supporting role. Until now. 54 Celsius creates candles which are so engaging that they will steal the show. The range consists of two collections: Pyropets, animal shaped candles that reveal metal skeletons as they melt, and Secret Message Candles.

The idea of PyroPet came to Thorunn while studying at the Royal College of Art in London in 2011. After exhibiting the cat candles (called “The Devil’s Pet” back then) in Milan and at her graduation show in London, they quickly gained a lot of attention on the internet. She joined forces with Dan Koval and they launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance their little startup.The campaign was a great success, in only 4 days they had reached their funding goal and at the end of the campaign they had reached 250% of their initial goal. Thorunn and Dan founded PyroPet Candle Company and are now selling Kisa in shops and galleries all around the world. More products will be added to the collection in the beginning of 2017.
