Meet the dynamic duo of the candle world– Andrew King & Samantha Irwin. Together, they are Standard Wax.
Their flagship creation, the Log Candle, is the best example of the perfection these two attained when they joined forces. Samantha pours each handmade vessel with her perfected soy wax blends and natural scent combinations (think: Fig-Pomegranate, Musk & Fern, Grapefruit & Mangosteen), and Andrew’s ceramic housing is meticulously hand-carved to resemble a tree log. It’s this last bit that will last long after the candle has burned away– and lucky for us, if we don’t need a planter or a pencil holder, we can have the container refilled with a scent of our choosing. Think this is all too good to be true? Well, we have photographic evidence of the entire process featuring these two artisans hard at work!
Ceramic Log Candle is available at Practical Art in a variety of fragrances and in a gun-metal or white glaze, $30 (Larger 3-wick versions also available)
