PryroPet – Dýri

Candles at Christmas time seem to go hand-in-hand with each other. We can spend a fortune on fine fragranced candles, or ones that look amazing. But, once the flame stops burning, that’s it – there’s nothing left to show! That is until now – let me introduce you to Dýri from PyroPet Candles, a very special reindeer, who will endeavour to be part of your Christmases for years to come!

Dýri, is a cute reindeer candle (rather large) with golden antlers. However, he is a candle with a difference! Once you light the wick the candle will start to melt and his delicate golden skeleton is revealed. As well as uncovering the gold within, the lit candle reflects an enchanting shadow against the wall as the shape becomes clear. Then this skeleton frame can be put on display year after year in addition to your other Christmas decorations.


“The idea came to Icelandic designer Thorunn Arnadottir, who has been selected as one of the 50 talents that are shaping the future by Icon Magazine, as she watched the chubby body of a jolly Santa Claus shaped candle slowly melt, deform, and perish into a sad pool of wax. She wanted to create a candle which would give people something to look forward to seeing as it melts.”

Thorunn has most definitely succeeded is giving joy to people. To watch this candle as it melts is amazing – it’s hard to peel your eyes away! The way she combines candles and contemporary macabre art is done so enchantingly. There are other candles in the collection such as Kisa the cat, BÍBÍ the bird and Hoppa the rabbit. Each candle can burn for up to 20 hours and will make a great focal point of discussion for your Christmas visitors.


PyroPet Candles will make a great gift for any time of the year, but the Dýri is ideal for Christmas.
Dýri is a short for hreindýr, which means ‘reindeer’ in Icelandic!  Dýri is available in two colours: blue and white, both with a golden skeleton. The Dýri Candle retails for £25 and is available from many retailers throughout the world. To see the list please click here.
