Crystalline Candleholders Made Using The Magic Of Magnetism

Jólan van der Wiel is a Dutch designer harnessing the power of nature to create unbelievable forms. His candlesticks begin as resin packed with iron oxide. Then, through a pulley system fitted with large magnets, the  resin is pulled along the magnetic field lines into shapes that represent a freakin’ force of physics, visualized right before our eyes. The invisible made visible.

When the resin sets, the magnetic field spikes are written in air forever, with no human intervention!

This is an incredible idea. What better centerpiece could you want?
