I like a little bit of quirky. I mean, the Little Mermaid had a shell bra, so why can't I have a sea urchin-style votive holder?!
In all seriousness, I love these urchin ceramic bowls by Heather Knight of Element Clay Studio. You can really use them for anything, I'm sure, but I love the idea of using them as a votive holder. When you think about it, how lovely would it look when lit at dusk? The texture of the points coming out, softly lit while the bottom parts turn into shadow? It would look gorgeous! I like the graphic quality of the white, as well, which still lets you easily see its texture and dimensionality. They're $25 a pop, so go grab one!
