New Product Alert! 🚨 ‘An English Garden’ 💐 Handmade Soy Candles
At last, after many months of development. I have finally launched the most beautifully scented soy candles you are gonna have a whiff of this year. Inspired by ‘The English Garden’ theme for my pop-up event in Studio Nine on Totnes high-street. These vegan soy candles are a Collection of floral and fruity goodness each in an individual handmade, wheel-thrown and piped pot.
Firstly, I threw these adorable little vase vessels on the potter’s wheel with hand-piped decoration adorning each one. Then, they are glazed in a lovely, smooth, satin white glaze and an array of colourful oh-so-glossy glazes. Before they are each hand-poured with high-quality fragranced soy candle wax. Also each handmade candle is protected with a handmade (from recycled paper) dust cover.
Finally, once you have melted your candle to the bottom, just remove the remaining candle wick and wipe the inside with some kitchen roll or tissue. Then you have a stunning mini vase for tiny bouquets or maybe a pen pot for the office.
Priced at an Exclusive introductory price of only £22.
