Floating Boat Candleholders by dOt

Have you ever seen origami paper boats floating in a pool or lake? They’re super easy to make and look beautiful sailing around together. Alberto Caramello, of dOt, took that idea an ran with it in his series of glazed ceramic candleholders that resemble the paper kind. Boat holds any color of candle and will float around your pool or pond to light up your evenings outdoors.


The boats mimic the shape of the folded paper variety but these withstand the water they’re placed in.


dOt even sells the candles that are pictured in yellow, blue, green, and white. Buy Boat and the candles here.
