Unique Handsculpted Beeswax Candles Inspired by Nature's Beauty

It all started in late Spring 1996 when I fell in love with working with beeswax and roses in my encaustic paintings. The sculptor side of me envisioned a candle shaped like a rose, mounted on rock, adorned with whole roses. I had to see what it would look like!

I'd always loved candles but had never made them before, so I jumped right in and spent the summer turning my idea into reality. First I studied traditional candlemaking techniques, then developed my own. By September my first group of "Rose Candle Sculptures" were completed and quickly sold out. Forest Candle Studio was born!

Over the years my original candle designs continue to evolve and new designs are added. As always, I use my own special techniques to handcraft each candle as an individual work of art. No two candles are exactly the same.

Whether lit or displayed, they are meant to add beauty, joy and natural luxury to your life. Many of the candles can be reused indefinitely by replacing the burned core with a votive or tea light.

HOW THE CANDLES ARE MADE:

I use 100% pure beeswax from honey farms in California and the Pacific Northwest. The natural colors of my beeswax candles range from golden amber to ivory white. To create unique shades in a wide variety of colors, I hand-dye the beeswax in small batches using eco-friendly USA-made candle dyes.

With loving care and close attention to detail (and my favorite knife & paint brush!), I hand-build, shape and dip many delicate layers of beeswax until satisfied with each candle design.

To adorn the candles, I use fair-trade roses that I air dry in small bunches throughout the year. A final dip in beeswax preserves their natural beauty. Other adornments include organic spices, organic lavender, paints & glitters, ribbons, brooches and other beautiful or unusual materials.

For the Rose Candle Sculptures, I hand-cut granite and other types of natural stone to use as permanent bases.

The entire process for each candle can take several days to a week or more.

WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU:

A variety of candle sizes, styles, colors, adornments, and quantities are available in my shop or by request. Any of my candles can be customized to your needs - just ask!

Since 1996 I've had the pleasure of creating candles for customers all over the world for:
• year-round gift-giving • home decor • weddings • holidays and other special occasions • entertaining • relaxation • spiritual rites • memorial candles • and more...
Custom orders are always welcomed.
