candle and matches

When I was a child, my parents always read me the story of The Little Match Girl, which seems to be faded away in the memory of younger generation. Inspired by the fairy tale from my childhood, the design recreates the simplest aesthetics of the everyday, lighting candle with matches. There are three forms when using the candle. First, the new candle is a holder for matches; second, as more matches are taken out to light the candle, the softened candle burns to a natural shape. Third, when all matches are used up, the hollowed candle will project a unique candlelight, as a trace of time.
