Mini glacier candles remind you of global warming as they melt

Icelandic designer Brynjar Sigurðarson has crafted a series of candles that look like glaciers. But there’s a bigger meaning behind these bluish-green beauties. As they slowly melt away, we’re reminded about the issue of global warming.

Each candle ranges in size from nine to 21 centimetres tall, and while designed by Sigurðarson, all were produced by the Spanish brand PCM, which searches for talented designers from the top schools.

PCM says of the Glacier Project: ‘Global heating is a reality. The arctic is melting. Is consciousness the beginning of awareness for Mother Nature? With the action of lighting the candle the glacier shape will melt and fade. For how long do we have to keep melting the glaciers until they disappear? Preservation of the environment is in our hands’.
