The Bonfire

We all meet by the fire. It was the glow we followed for miles. I knew you would be there, just because you said you would. 

Moments in time are hard to capture, a smell, a feeling, the sound track that takes you back to your happy place. We created "The Bonfire" to honour time spent reflecting on the past and the future. A smell to take you home, take you far away or just to make you smile. Our reflection of the memories we have of the coastline we love so much. 

Each candle is hand poured with our very own signature scents. Once the candle has melted away, you are left with a beautiful Mini Rosa Bowl. A place for all things you hold dear. 

What's are the fragrance notes:

  1. Coastal - Smoky warmth, sweet earth, Amber and Oak
  2. Sand Dune - Sea salt, tussock, driftwood
  3. East Coast - Pine, sugar and spice
  4. West Coast - Sandalwood, smoke and fire

Key Features:

  • Wheel Thrown on the Potters Wheel: These stunning candles are first formed on the wheel and bent and moved by hand to create the stunning waves and curves

  • Authors Special Blend of Clay: Made using a blend of Author clays mixed with sand from the West and East Coast

  • Water Tight: Glazed with a simple clear gaze and fired to 1220 degrees to ensure the bowl is food safe, water tight and finished with a nice gloss.

  • Hand poured: Our candles are hand-poured with special care to maintain quality and consistency. To ensure you get the most out of your burn time, you’ll need to follow the instructions below.

Candle Care:

  • Always trim your wick to 5mm before lighting your candle.
  • On the first burn, allow the wax to melt until it reaches the edges of your vessel and there is about a 1cm pool of melted wax before extinguishing. This creates a clean and even burn. 
  • After use & once the wax has cooled and set, trim your wick to 5mm again before  relighting to avoid 'mushrooming' of the wick. 
  • Discontinue use when the wax reaches 10mm from the bottom of your vessel.
  • Keep candles out of direct sunlight or hot spaces.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended
