Please note: Because each candle is individually made - natural variations will occur.
Your bespoke candle is made with high grade soy wax and botanicals. We suggest that to get the full burn hours from your candle that you allow it to melt to the sides of the container each time you light it. This way it will burn down evenly, preventing tunnelling and extend its longevity. We also suggest for safety reasons that you do not burn for more than 3hours at a time and that you trim the wick before each use to avoid the container from overheating and the wick depositing soot onto the container.
About the Artist
We are proud to collaborate with Warndu co-founder and Adnyamathanha artist, Damien Coulthard by licensing some of his most popular works for our range of homewares and gifting.
Coulthard’s paintings draw on the stories and oral histories of remote South Australia told by his great-grandmother. Using natural ochres gathered with his father from his ancestral Adnyamathanha land, Coulthard creates images of great formal beauty that traverse the topics of creation, landscape, kinship, initiation and food-gathering.
