When asked why she chose to work with marbles of all things, she replied, “I use various materials in my art, and as a creative person, one day I saw a large bag of marbles and thought, ‘I can make something really lovely out of these.’ I started with one candle holder, and the collection grew from there. I only work with a certain type of marble and I first crystallize the marine or opaque marbles to give them the crackle effect, which makes them look like large sparkling diamonds.”
Of the six styles to be released through Kickstarter, four styles of candle holders incorporate marbles: the Crystal Marbletini™ Collection, the Crystal Starburst Collection, the Solid Marbletini™ Collection, and the Solid Starburst Candle Holder Collection. The marbles are glazed in place and according to LaTiahna, “appear as though they’re floating in sparkling water.” The remaining two styles are made using colored resin: the Layered Tropitini™ Collection and the Tropical Tropitini™ Candle Holder Collection. The LED Tea Light, which is provided, can be removed and the batteries can be replaced for repeated use. They are available in a myriad of colors and each will be handmade by LaTiahna. She is even taking pledges/orders for the upcoming December Holiday gift giving season.
