SWC X Ferro Forma | The Whee-La

Hand Forged Brass Candle Snuffer

Proudly crafted in collaboration with Australian metalsmiths, Ferro Forma, the Whee-la Brass Snuffer is a limited-edition candle snuffer that encapsulates the spirit of the Australian bush.

A one-of-a-kind keepsake, the Whee-La snuffer is crafted from 100% brass using traditional techniques. The hand-hammered texture gives each piece a unique personality and the touch of the maker’s hand. Inspired by nature, the snuffer is a tribute to the majestic black cockatoo, and their distinctive ‘Whee-la’ cry.
Made in a limited edition of 50, each candle snuffer comes presented in a vintage style box with a numbered candle care book mark.

Our candles come with an important safety label on the base of our vessels and packaging to ensure you are well informed on the correct and sensible use of our products. Please take a moment to read through this to equip yourself with candle safety best practices.

In addition to standard safety guidelines on the safety label, please read the helpful advice below to remember when using our candles:

  • On your first burn, light your candle for at least three hours. This will allow an even melt across the surface of the candle and will avoid tunnelling. Tunnelling results in a ‘tunnel’ effect running down the centre of your candle.
  • Ensure the wick is kept trimmed to approximately 5mm in length to control the flame height and burn time. Trimming ensures that the candle will burn evenly, but also helps ensure you will get a nice clean and even burn throughout the lifetime of your candle. Looking after your wick is essential and will pro-long the life of your candle. Our Click Go The Shears Wick Trimmer is the perfect accessory and have been designed to cleanly cut your wick every time.
  • To finish your burn, elegantly extinguish the flame by using a candle snuffer or cloche. This prevents any chance of the melted wax from spilling.
  • Keep your candle free dust by using the lid from the tube packaging or under a Southern Wild Co glass cloche.
  • Avoid burning candles in draughty areas. This encourages an even burn and maximises your candles lifetime.
  • Discontinue use of your candle once wax is 10mm from the bottom. This will prevent any heat damage and cracking of glass.
  • Always burn your candle on a flat and stable surface.
  • Never leave a candle burning unattended or within reach of children or pets.
