The crocks that we sell are of high quality. As candle makers ourselves, we have purchased the inexpensive ones that offer a variety of designs. We found them to be very inferior due to cracking in the finish both inside and out after a poured candle had been burned in them. Our crocks will hold up for years and can be refilled for your customers season after season. You also have the ability to decorate them as you wish with appliques, bows etc.
