“A Poem Written in Beeswax”: Hand-Dipped Candles by Alysia Mazzella
Alysia Mazzella tells her candle-making story this way:
“We began in 2017 with the hand-dipped taper. The heart of our studio is this big ol’ pot of molten beeswax. The scent of honey fills the air and wax touches everything.”
Six years later, she’s still hand-making candles in her small studio outbuilding in central New York from locally sourced beeswax. The candles themselves are intentionally simple, according to Alysia’s site: “Our work creatively reflects on time-honored candles that offer an intentional burn, the role of the firekeeper, and a regenerative relationship with the honeybee.”
Have a look.
