I gave this as a gift and the receiver was very impressed with it and intrigued ; the only draw back was wish it came in different colors.
Whimsical, bad-ass cat candle

I fell in love with this candle the first time I saw it. I bought it for a friend for her birthday and she loved it! It is so unique and well made.
3 out of 5...

I'm giving this a 3 because the actual skeleton is not a durable metal structure and that's disappointing. I teach Anatomy and Physiology and my idea was to buy one of each and keep the skeletons and urge my kids to create neat skeletons that would suit fantasy structures... but the skeleton of the dragon literally does not stand up, the base fell apart. Disappointing. Very cool up until that point.

I gave this to my son's girlfriend for Christmas. They both like cats and somewhat spooky things. She loves it.

Animal Skeleton Candle

choose option

This animal skeleton candle turns an otherwise modern-looking piece of decor into something a little bit wicked. Inside each creature hides a metal skeleton that is revealed when the wax melts. Unexpected and impossible to ignore.


Artist Thorunn Arnadottir’s animal skeleton candles perfectly capture her sense of humor, which she describes as “a bit wicked”. Her PyroPet collection balances precariously on the line between cute and twisted; as a candle burns, the animal melts away to reveal an unexpected surprise.

Spoiler: It’s a metal skeleton.

While studying at the Royal College of Arts in London, Iceland-based Thorunn began toying with the idea of what a shaped candle looks like once it melts. She thought the results were often creepy. Playing off that, Thorunn first made a cat candle—complete with its own skeleton—and has expanded the PyroPet menagerie to include an owl, a reindeer, and other charming creatures. Lighting one of her candles is an experience you want to watch unfold—it’s unexpected, a little dark, and impossible to ignore, which suits Thorunn perfectly. more Their Story
