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

A NEW KIND OF CANDLE
We're shut in. Time feels different. We
may be alone, or spending our time
with a few others. Here's a new way
to spend that time: gazing into a
candle flame. It can be mesmerizing.

Share the experience: be silent,
together, each absorbed in his or her
thoughts. Thoughts, perhaps, to
share afterwards. We make this
candle available in our store at 415
Rosendale's Main Street, or online.

Most of us prefer
contemplating a real flame
rather than a picture of one;
as a species we grew into
human beings at our
ancestral firesides. However,
we recognize that there are
places where an open flame
is not an option.
Because we want to supply all
who long for the presence of a
friendly candle to help neutralize
the stresses of day, we offer a
“sweet substitute”—sets of real
wax “flameless” decorated
candles from Wilda’s studio.
Semi-transparent wax pillars in
off-white, 3”x6”, 3”x4”, and
3”x3”. Batteries included. More
designs to come!
