Some of SHAUN’S craft works:
Our Button Macaron Soaps are cute as a button… Designed to love every curve of your body, our button soaps are created for a luxuriously decadent experience. Easy to grip, our soap follows the curve of your body without getting lost at the bottom of the tub. Try them in every scent…
Yes, it’s a candle, but in a beautiful Asian bowl. Add style to any occasion, whether it’s dinner for two or a party for eight. As the candle burns, the “rice” remains lit from the inside, and gleams through the “rice-grain” windows built into the traditional-styled bowl and spoon.
Align with Your Sign Meditation Candles… Our Zodiac Meditation Candles feature original Rosendale Waxworks zodiac artwork revealed as the wax slowly melts away. Designed for a one hour burn time, these candles are perfect for a soothing meditative experience. Find your birth sign or collect all 12 for a beautiful collection of zodiac art. The perfect gift for a friend or loved one.
CHECK OUT OUR SHOP IN ROSENDALE
For Wilda, making candles has become a channel for her lifelong passion for art and she indulges her delight in tracking down the perfect scents to carry her back to precious moments in her past, and yours.
Shaun practices his latest outlet of art, inventing and producing new kinds of candles, in the shop’s front window. Passers-by will often find him in his candle- making corner; a perfect space to share his newest discoveries with them.
“Candle making has been thought of as an art for only the past few decades. It’s just beginning.” Shaun

Art Discovery Lamps
Set of six artists’ self portraits
Above: what goes into the making of one of our lamps. Next: the custom wick. Below, the art lies concealed beneath the wax.
How quickly would you recognize famous artists' self portraits, revealed tantalizingly slowly by the burning of a wick at the center of a shallow candle? How quickly would you recognize Van Gogh's self portrait, for example? We now offer both a single portrait “lamp” and a set of six.
Relax with this set of calming puzzles.
Do you every so often feel the need to zone out but find it hard to unwind? We've a suggestion: try gazing into a candle flame. And not just any candle but candles we're calling "Art Discovery Lamps." We call them "lamps" because, as they burn, they illuminate the gradual recovery of some familiar and precious art. Whose portrait will it be? We don't tell you, it'll be up to you to tell that as the candle burns. Reveal starts in 5 minutes and continues to full reveal in about 50 minutes.
