Ceramic match striker with lid, matte blue slate
Handmade ceramic match striker, speckled clay, glazed in a two-toned, matte blue slate and a creamy off-white.
Measures approx. 3.25" tall x 2.5" wide
Each section of the striker is individually hand thrown and trimmed on a potter's wheel. Both pieces of the striker have to be made separately and match up perfectly, so they are a bit labor intensive to produce. This often involves several trimming sessions to make the lid fit perfectly.
The inside of the lid has been left unglazed to provide a rough surface for striking the match. Lid provides a safe holder for spent match to cool. And as an added bonus, the lid can be used as a tea light holder!
This match striker is intended for use with "strike anywhere" matches. Due to shipping restrictions with these type of matches, unfortunately we cannot include them with the ceramic striker.
Paulova ceramics are entirely handmade. Slight variations in glaze patterns, size and surface texture are to be expected.
