Add a pastoral touch to your yard, garden or patio with handmade ceramic mosquito coil holders featuring colorful animal-themed handles.
Spiral mosquito-repelling coils designed to gently smolder away for hours have been a “must have” summer evening item for over a century. Composed of natural pyrethrum powder derived from the dried seed heads of certain types of chrysanthemum flowers, these coils are non-toxic for people and pets.
Michelles Ceramics, a cottage industry based in Western Australia, is offering a series of handmade mosquito coil holders designed to keep the smoldering coils under cover, allow for the effective diffusion of smoke, and look lovely in the process.
The artist/designer lists holders whose handles are stylized naturalistic geckos, butterflies, dragonflies, frogs, ladybugs, and even a giant mosquito – just so you won't forget what it's for!
Each holder measures 15cm (6 inches) in diameter and they're crafted individually from terracotta clay with no molds, meaning every holder is unique. The base features a built-in stand to support the coil as it burns.
Mosquitoes spread Malaria, Dengue fever, West Nile fever and Zika virus to humans and can transmit Heartworm to dogs, so these tasteful mosquito coil holders belong in every pet-owner's home and garden. For more info and ordering details, please contact Michelles Ceramics online.
