Slow burn


In addition to flat-packed furniture, plentiful paternity leave, and wind power wizardry, Scandinavians know to brighten dark days. With daylight waning this time of year, Cambridge maker Gabriella Levy of immerLit ("immer" means "always" in German) follows suit with her handcrafted votives, as well as her similarly styled pendants and lamps. The sculptural porcelain pieces, finished with a translucent cream glaze, provide a comforting glow when clustered on the breakfast table or along the windowsill come nightfall. Votives, $172/set of three at www.immerlit.com
