Especially for our ocean lovers, I’m thrilled to introduce our new Ombre Atlantic collection of Chapel candles. A play between deep blue, aquamarine and white, our signature textured wax echos the beauty and drama of waves meeting the shore.
Pouring three colours at the same time has it’s technical challenges (especially for the two handed), but I’ve loved exploring colour and texture in a new way. I couldn’t be happier with the effect, and I love that these candles can’t be mass produced.
I’m still perfecting the technique to get beautiful texture while allowing the colours to gently mingle but not be completely absorbed by each other. The hardest part is waiting 24 hours to see the results! There have been many candles re-melted as I explore this new way of working with wax, but I couldn’t be happier – it’s all part of the creative process.
Visually, I love that each candle tells a story of the wildness of the ocean, of deep water, ripples, bubbles and froth.
I have just sent out the first set of these beauties to their forever home, and I’m busily working on more sets to send next week. And now it’s over to you. I can’t wait to see all your photos, to see how they look in your space, and most importantly I hope your evenings and rainy afternoons are warmed by candle light.
