Halloween is behind us, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be interested in creepy stuff. Behold, Kisa by PyroPet! Meaning “kitty” in Icelandic, Kisa is a beautiful cat shaped candle that melts down to reveal a menacing metal skeleton. First manifested as the Devil’s Candle back in 2011, Thorunn Arnadottir and Dan Koval designed the candle after a melting Santa Claus candle inspired Thorunn to attempt to capture the “true theatre of the macabre in wax.”
The candle is now available on Kickstarter. The candle is 7” tall and has a burning time of approximately 20 hours.
