Glass Candle Holders and Direct Flames

Posting date: 7th November 2007 22:15

Glass candle holders are extremely popular both for their contemporary designs but also because the glass catches and reflects the light so beautifully that the candleholder really adds to the atmosphere.

You do need to be careful, however, that a direct flame is not applied to the glass, particularly if it is thin glass.

Overheating glass, which can occur when it is in direct contact with the candle flame, can cause the glass candleholder to crack or shatter.

So take care that tea lights are away from the sides on the candle holders and take care that long candles are not allowed to burn right down so that the flame is very close to the glass.

Simple to follow once you know!
