Candle ashtray traps ash and cigarette butts


Vizio from FlussoCreativo is an ashtray that makes good of a candle. When you light up, light the candle as well.

Of course, bringing dreams into reality may sometimes require a touch of image manipulation, but the Israel based photographer tries to use these tools as rarely as possible.
