The column candle, is one of the most traditional candle shapes.  For hundreds of years, homes, places of worship, and other public places have been lit with the column candle.  Originally, column candles have been made by pouring molten beeswax down a suspended wick.  The beeswax cooling and forming the candle shape as is drips down the wick back into the wax melting pot.

Whilst the wax was still warm, the candle maker would roll the candle until a perfectly round column candle was formed.  As you can imagine, this was a time consuming process, and not effective for mass production, so, during the industrial revolution, when the demand for lighting increased due to extended formalised working hours, techniques were developed to improve productivity.

One technique developed was the manufacture of the drawn candle.  Drawn candles are made by repeatedly pulling a long wick through a bath of hot molten wax.  After the last coating of wax, the formed candle length is passed through a sizing die to ensure a constant diameter is achieved.

To maximise production, between each of the ‘draws’, the wick and forming candle is stored on rotating drums.  After the final diameter has been formed, the long candle is unwound and individual candles are cut to length.  This is why you may find a gentle curve along the length of traditionally drawn candles.

As automation techniques advanced, so the process of moulding dinner candles became cost effective for mass production.  To mould column dinner candles, wax is poured into a straight mould, with a wick positioned through the middle of the mould.  As the wax cools, it shrinks in the mould allowing the cooled column candle to be easily removed.

At thecandleselection.co.uk, we offer a selection of both traditionally drawn and moulded column dinner candles in a range of colours and lengths.  From this selection, we are sure that you will find candles to suit your home décor or the theme of your event, be it a wedding, a banquet, dinner party, celebration or awards evening.
