Artek Secrets of Finland: Lucia Candle Holder

  • Q & A
Part of the FIN/JPN collection, which celebrates 100 years of diplomatic relations between Finland and Japan, the Secrets of Finland family is beautifully symbolic. Each of the handcrafted ceramic objects represents and celebrates a seasonal ritual on the Finnish calendar such as Easter, Midsummer, and St. Lucia Day. The sweetly simple yet expressive designs are meant to evoke the pagan past of Finland, and were achieved through close collaboration with COMPANY founders Aamu Song and Johan Olin. Collect all six to tell the full story or gift one that has meaning to someone you share sacred traditions with.

This piece commemorates St. Lucia Day, which is celebrated in Finland on December 13th. That evening, thousands of Finnish girls dress up as Lucia the light-bringer in a white gown, red sash, and candlelit crown to combat the darkness of winter. Lucia holds three candlesticks while the smaller version, Lucius, holds a single light.

I’ve been looking at the Artek Lucia candle holder for two years and finally broke down and bought it. So happy I did. It’s just lovely. And the nice thing is she doesn’t have to be out just during the holidays. You can switch out the candles. For Christmas I used white candles for a traditional look. Now she’s wearing twisted colored candles so it looks like she just got a perm. For summer , maybe a bit more color? The possibilities are endless!

  • Holds three sturdy candles, not just the slime tapers.
  • Pleasing color and satiny finish.

This is a great piece. It is a fun contemporary take on the Lucia tradition. It blends well with the more traditional items in my collection and the color/texture of the ceramic is very nice. I can't wait to purchase more from this collection.
