Manufacture of the Wax Burner
Here you can watch a short film about how our Wax Burners are made.
The process takes six weeks, from mixing the ceramic mass to the finished Wax Burner. Our manufacturing process calls for the skills of an experience ceramicist. Our film shows you which steps are necessary.
How a Wax Burner is made from CeraNatur® clay and a good dose of technical skill
The CeraNatur® clay is mixed in our mill.
After two weeks of storage, the material can be kneaded and worked.
The blank is shaped and then very intricately finished on the pottery wheel.
This can only be done by well trained ceramicists with years of experience.
The soft ceramic needs gentle hands.
The larger the Wax Burner, the more difficult the manufacture.
Each wax burner then needs to dry in the air for two weeks.
The water that is bound in the clay then evaporates.
And then there’s still time for a cup of coffee.
Each Wax Burner then spends a further week in a kiln before it can be fired. The CeraNatur® ceramic is then fired for 24 hours at up to 1,300°C in an open gas flame.
The oven can be opened the next day. The ceramic is now hard and durable. Our unique CeraNatur® ceramic is made from grey clay, but the velvety soft surface changes into natural brown tones. Each one is unique.
Now the burner with long-lasting wick is put in the melting bowl.
The Wax Burner is filled with liquid wax.
Once the wax has solidified, each wax burner is packaged in a gift box, ready for dispatch.
Now, six weeks after the clay was mixed, the Wax Burner can be lit by its new owner.
