The Escape Co’s bespoke collection of concrete candles are handcrafted and hand-poured by Candise in her humble studio in Sydney.
Just like each one of us, no candle is alike or perfect which is what makes them so magical. The inspiration for this collection arises from the natural surrounds of her home. It is an attempt to capture the exquisite beauty of the Australian gumtree seen through the lens of the Japanese aesthetic ‘wabi-sabi’ – roughly translating as imperfect beauty. Using the rawness of concrete and the softness of soy wax, Candise finds the perfect mediums to portray her vision and bring something special to your home.
