Bitter Melon Candle / Piera Bochner
Bitter Melon Candle, handmade by Piera Bochner
7.5 in. x 2.25 in.
The shapes of each candle are derived from organic produce found in the markets of Berlin and New York. The colored waxes are individually melted and then poured into molds, waiting for each layer to dry before adding the next, and waiting for the entire candle to harden before seeing the final result.
The process is intuitive, spontaneous, and somewhat unpredictable, each candle is individual.
