The Boundary between art and craft comes down to status; art has a higher status than craft but an object can be viewed in many ways, it is all about perspective on a huge spectrum of thoughts and emotions that blend seamlessly together encompassing human creativity, skill and imagination. The craft of candle making is no ART FORGERY...
Authentic hand-poured candles from our London art studio.
From the London studio of a master candle artisan who holds the Royal Warrant to HRH Prince Charles I was to learn the beginnings of the divine magic of creating a candle, and that it is a lengthy affair, requiring patience and tenacity. Forged in the aged old tradition of handmade artisan style is at its heart a combination of alchemy and art. A long and painstaking procedure with endless experiments using a variety of waxes, wicks, and perfumes and much hair pulling are it seems required for this meticulous procedure to ensure the perfect burn and scent throw.
Once satisfied with the search for that perfect ratio, the fine fragrance is slowly added to the mix of high quality 'food grade' paraffin/vegetable wax of which the purity and quality is assured before being hand-poured into each glass, the difficult task of setting the wick is far from easy and require a steady hand. Each candle is then left to dry allowing the perfumes to produce their own unique charm.
Finally for the finishing touch each candle is placed by hand into a beautiful pouch and boxed for completion before its journey into the world.
Caring properly for your candle will ensure an average burn time of approx 50 hours.
