Meandering sigils inscribe a lore of inexorable beauty.

This tealight holder features a pattern generated from a reaction-diffusion simulation using the Gray-Scott model. A subtle overlay of small-scale noise gives the surface a grainy texture.

Two versions are provided: a regular model with a thin wall and a model meant to be printed in vase mode. The latter version has a much shorter printing time, but the overall effect of the texture is less prominent.
