As the sun begins to set and the shadows lengthen on the wall take a match and light the wick on Kisa. Settle into a cozy chair and relax. Watch as Kisa burns. Look at her shadow on the wall. A lazy warping profile of a kitten in the gathering evening darkness. But look closer. That is no kittenΓÇÖs profile. That is a skeletonΓÇÖs profile! Now look back at your candle. Your cute kittenΓÇÖs now melted skin has peeled back to reveal a menacing flame scorched skeleton. Its sharp teeth glinting in the candle light and fire filled eyes staring back at you unblinking and unamused.


How did the idea come about:


The idea came to Thorunn when she was thinking about the way people use candles:


ΓÇ£One day as I watched the chubby body of a jolly Santa Claus shaped candle slowly melt, deform, and perish into a sad pool of wax I wondered if I could elevate this common place ritual sacrifice into a true theatre of the macabre in wax.ΓÇ¥


She came up with the idea of embedding a metal skeleton within a cat shaped candle. A sinister form, lurking, biding its time, waiting to be revealed.


ΓÇ£Cats have always had a split personality. One minute purring contentedly the next hissing and temperamental. While they are cute and huggable they have a dark side associated with witchcraft and sorcery. Kisa was created to capture this duality. Kisa performs a slowly unfolding transformation from cute kitty to brooding skeleton.ΓÇ¥
