BUMBLE BEESWAX CANDLES
When did you begin designing & creating candles?
It was around three years ago, it originally began as a hobby
making candles for ourselves, friends and families, after becoming
increasingly dissatisfied with the lack of truly natural
candles in the market-place.
How would you describe your designs?
Simple and natural.
Who are the designers, artists or creative people that inspire you?
We're inspired by artists and creative people who use sustainable
and eco-friendly materials to create beautiful pieces of work.
How does a typical day of work go for you?
We both have full time jobs in the corporate world which keeps
our days occupied. The evenings and weekends are
focused on producing candles.
What is your creative process when designing a new piece?
We like to balance beauty with functionality, we thoroughly test
our candle designs (and a huge amount of different wicks!)
before selling them. If they don't burn sufficiently we will never
sell them no matter how good they look!
How would you like people to feel when they use your designs?
Fantastic, knowing that they're burning a candle that not only looks
incredible but is good for their health and they're supporting
Aussie farmers and their communities!
What makes your designs unique?
Candles have been around for centuries, however we feel the fact
we use 100% pure Australian Beeswax with cotton wicks and
hand make all our candles with great care is unique.
What is your advice to aspiring designers?
My advice is to follow your passion, you never
know where it may lead.
What will you be selling at the June Handmade Market?
We will be selling everything, tea lights, votives, hand-rolled pillars
and our amazingly beautiful carved eggs, large beehives,
wedding cakes and Christmas trees.
