I make ceramic candle containers that vary in shape and size. Today I picked one that has been sitting on my bench to make a new candle.

Trappeur gave me some advice on this once and I must have stupidly not put it in my notes, I'll look and see if I can find that post too. Going legally blind in left eye due to hereditary macular
