Use & Safety
- Melting Wax: Pyropet Candles are designed to melt in ways that are different from traditional candles. During the burning process they may release large amounts of liquid wax. care should be taken to put the candle on a plate or other contain to eliminate the risk of wax overflow.
- Hot Skeleton: Do not touch the skeleton during burning. It becomes hot and may cause injury if touched directly.
- High Flame: The flame may become high during burning. The wick of the candle should be kept trimmed to 1/4 inch.

The idea for the PyroPet candles came to Thorunn when she was thinking about the way people use candles: "One day I saw the body of a Santa Claus shaped candle with his head melted away. I wondered if I could elevate this ritual sacrifice into a true theatre of the macabre in wax". She came up with the idea of embedding a metal skeleton within a cat shaped candle. Like real cats, Kisa the cat candle was mysterious, biding its time, waiting to surprise you.
