Dreamers Spotlight : Celestial Soy Candles

Tell us something about yourself? 

Both Greg and I work at full time jobs but were looking for something creative we could do together. A friend inspired me to try candle making and Greg making the candle holders just followed on from there. We decided to share our products with others, hopefully to be able to have a small business we can continue into retirement. 



What are your sources of inspiration?

  Inspired to create something not only which makes our house smell heavenly but also something which can give enjoyment to lots of other people. 
Where and when did you learn your craft? Who taught you? 

I taught myself to make candles with advice from a friend and lots of great info from the internet. Greg has been working with metal all his life so designing and making candle holders has flowed from those years of experience. 
Aside from your craft, what else do you enjoy doing?


  Checking out second hand shops for unique containers to turn into “limited edition” candles What piece of advise can you give to other artists? You need to be really passionate about creating beautiful products for others to enjoy as well as yourself. 

What are your plans for the future?


  To continue enjoying making our products and building up our business, both wholesale and retail, and being able to continue it when we eventually retire. 

Celestial candles will be at the Dreamers Market on April 5, 2014.
