Welcome to the Clearcraft oil candle website! On the site you will find dozens of different styles, from small to tall, from practical to elegant and from economical to reassuringly expensive!
There are so many variations, but all oil candles have the same basic qualities that make them not just an alternative to wax candles, but your first choice for candlel light.
They are clean and simple to use to use, and do not melt leaving messy wax everywhere (I once had to throw away a rug because the wax from a pillar candle had flowed out of the candle plate (safely on the hearth) and onto the rug) . This also means they will always look as good as when you bought them. Can you remember a time when you bought, or received as a gift, a beautiful candle - perhaps you've still got it, untouched on your mantelpiece, because you're too frightened to light it, because it will be ruined the moment you do. Well, with an oil candle, you can use it as often as you like without spoiling it.
All our candles come complete with spill resistant wicks so if you knock one over, nothing, or almost nothing will come out. And the very durable glassware used is strong enough to withstand some rough handling!
And you know, all that stuff about safety and strength and practicality of our oil candles is really great, but you will want to buy them simply because they're beautiful.
Enjoy the site. I hope you find the perfect candle for you!
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
"To light up every home in Britain with innovation and style. And have fun doing it!!"
Clearcraft was established in 1990, initially as a market trading business at Greenwich Market. We had one stall, and sold our glass candles, that we imported from Germany.
We have been passionate about oil candles since we first dicovered them in Germany, and now we design lamps, own patents on lamps and have been safety consultants with ROSPA for these kinds of products.
After finding the products in 1991, we soon set up our own glass blowing factory and started designing and making our own. The business grew and over the years we supplied many retailers throughout the UK, including TESCO, ASDA The GADGET SHOP and CONRAN.
Recently, we have been concentrating exclusively on the restaurant market, but now, because of public demand, we have launched our new website, dedicate to supplying you.
Because we have chosen to specialise in restaurant supply, all of our innovation has been led by our customers. When we can see a need, then we try to fill it with a new design, or modification of an old one. Their requirements are rigorous and practical, and to some extent we have been let off the leash with our new product range, because we are not restricted by practicality, and can design more elegant and expansive candles.
We hope that you enjoy them!
