Candles poured by hand in sensitive objects.

To learn more about my work,
🍃 Genesis 🍃

With the little treasures of Adele, I seek to revalue objects that touched me, sensitive objects that could not decently stay longer in the shadows.

In a way, this rehabilitation work had already begun since people cared enough not to throw them away, by handing them over to associations or by exposing them at garage sales. This is how I discovered them and they seized me with their singular beauty. The idea that these containers accommodate wax to become candles seemed perfect to me to bring them to light again! My job is to spot these little treasures and reveal their brilliance. Once I've collected them, I take care of them as best I can, every step of the way. 



I begin by observing them at length: their material sometimes soft, sometimes rough, their singular, angular or sinuous forms and how the light reveals their hues... Their imperfections reveal to me a little of their history, from the passage of time to their sensitive surface.

I clean them thoroughly, then I write down some technical data: a weighing to assess the weight of soy wax needed, precise measurements so that future buyers can imagine them as close as possible to their reality. After positioning the cotton wick and fixing it tightly so that it remains centered, I melt the soy wax chips at a mild temperature. Then I gently pour the wax and let it quietly take shape. 
Finally, I give the candle the name it inspires me. By naming her so, I wish to symbolize her newfound value through her new life. 


Revalorizing these objects also means for me paying particular attention to the choices of the service providers to whom I order my raw materials. As best I can, I carefully select small companies that care about human and environmental values.

I hope that once the wax is consumed, these delicate containers will continue their metamorphosis, becoming, for example, the pot cover of a small plant, the vase of a few cut flowers, or the receptacle of other creative ideas.

🌱 Non-GMO soy wax. Soy wax has a rather neutral smell and is characterized by slow burning and without black smoke. It is by definition vegan.
🌱 Candle wick 100% cotton free of zinc, lead or other toxic materials.
🌱 The candle comes in a nice organic cotton pouch. I pack it myself, with the utmost care and send it as a tracked package. I will send you this tracking number as soon as you ship.
