Candles are a special category all their own because they are the result of a combination of earth~wax, wind~air, fire~flame and in the case of our #floating candles, water! Plus, they must do their job of giving
us light and ambiance and romance and maybe fragrance. A little candle has to do a big job!
What started out as experimenting with the materials has evolved over the years as we gathered experience and creative ideas. One thing lead to another - 36" tall drippy taper candles somehow evolved into elegant sand cast candles which lead to the delicate decorative designs you see today. Master candle maker and founder, Kent Buttermann, created the signature textured finish on the #pillar candles just a few years ago and continues to refine the pouring techniques, quality details and wax formulas.

Taking good care of your tools is always an important part of the process and we have tools that are still in use even after many, many years at the candle factory. We have more wax scrapers than we can count - they're everywhere!
