2021 x Wax Atelier

As we take a step forward into 2022 with optimism and renewed energy, we take a look back at a few highlights from 2021 at Wax Atelier…

In brief:
New blends and colours (including a collection of candles made from orange peel wax), waxed flower workshops, a bunch of super retailers from all over the world, a baby popped out 🐣 — And we celebrated our first year anniversary with our wonderful and talented team of makers !!

📣 Huge thanks to our collaborators, retailers, customers & comrades: @toast @HouseofHackney @Coffeewerkandpress @matthewwilliamson @iamLauraJackson @glassette @London_honey_co @nickeykehoe @Strawlondon @mybloomist @secretgarden_v @henryhollandstudio @gardenmuseum @Hoste.london @franklintill @homework.store @susie_atkinson @kindred.house @aquaoleum @nellcard @up.with.the.lark @carmelkingphoto @rozkara and many more…

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST: this was the first full year working with our team of highly-skilled artisans, following last year’s training program developed with the generous support of @everyone_org. Since then, we have offered continuous employment and training to this core team of faithful makers, who are now experts in our craft. We’re so proud of you all! 🙌 💪

Excited to welcome in 2022! 🎉

Happy New Year from
Lola, Yesenia & team WAX Atelier

Happy Winter Solstice 🌞

Today we light a candle to the longest night of the year, and to celebrate the Sun’s return 🌞

We light a candle as we remember that we are part of this remarkable natural cycle, something way bigger than us.

It’s indeed the shortest day of the year, and from tomorrow, days will grow increasingly longer, until Summer’s Solstice.

Across the world, in many ancient cultures, this day would have seen cults to the sun of all sorts: bonfires, donations, feasts…as societies were desperate to get the sun light back on which harvests were highly dependent on.

We’d like to dedicate this one to our amazing team of makers for accompanying us throughout this whole first year together !

And what a great year it has been, full of exciting projects, punctuated by many challenges (it wouldn’t be as fun!😝) and a beautiful perspective on what’s to come🥂

We had a super nice celebratory day. It started with wreaths making and ended up gloriously with a Dim sun & cocktails delights 🥟 🥟 🍸🍹

Big up to our wonderful team of Wax makers, past and present , you know who you are 🙏 ⭐️

Happy Christmas, rest well, and see you on the other side 💫

Wax Atelier x FRANKLINTILL

We are so looking forward to hosting our next Wax Flower Ikebana workshop for the wonderful team at @FranktlinTill at @strawlondon this week!

Once again, we will be using our production waste from candles and textiles to create bundles of naturalistic
waxed linen flowers in homage to the celebrated English florist, Constance Spry.

As a “flower decorator” – as she liked to be called - Constance Spry sought to cultivate beauty in all its forms, by bringing the out-doors in with ingenuity and style.

Ceramic Oil Candle

Inspired by the traditional and genuine lighting technique of the oil lamp, our Ceramic Oil Candle is composed of a ceramic cup - specially created for WAX Atelier, by London based ceramicist @carlybreameceramics - a cork float and a cotton wick.

The wick floats on a small amount of vegetable oil poured in the ceramic cup. It brings such warm atmosphere to our indoor spaces during these darker days.

We recommend infusing the oil with freshly cut herbs (rosemary, sage…) to release a natural and subtle scent in your indoor spaces.

This is a limited collection, available in two sizes, until it lasts!

Candle Holders : Collection extended !

We have curated a selection of candle holders from different horizons!
It’s kind of becoming a small family of objects that cohabit with our candles, as we see in each of them - and in the person they belong to - different personalities.
Let us introduce you to our latest additions…

The Modernist:
the bold yet simple stone holders designed by @tiipoi

The Minimalists:
Two small holders handmade in Japan: the porcelain cube, and the black cast iron stand for these special daily rituals when enjoying a moment of calm.

The bucolic:
A Japanese black iron holder with handle joins our iconic black flat plate. Two rustic moody guys.

Each holder comes well accompanied with a candle, a pair or a bundle.

Check them out, these are now all available in exclusivity on our online store!

If Christmas decorations aren't really your thing, create some festive ambience with our Wax Atelier candle range instead. These beautiful hand-twisted beeswax candles are made from a blend of Orange peel wax and beeswax. We hear they go down a treat at dinner parties too.

London Honey Company x
WAX Atelier

This summer we developed a special collection of double dipped candles for The @london_honey_co , inspired by the beauty and colour of the wild heather moors, and the deep rich colour of their incredible Ling Heather Honey, made by the bees on these high remote hills.

We created this limited edition batch to celebrate the purity of British beeswax, produced by the bees from the honey company hives from all across the British countryside.

We felt incredibly lucky to work with this wonderfully scented wax which has a sweet yet natural aroma. The honey bees from Barking were also enchanted (we had a few kamikaze bees dive right into our molten wax bath!)

This special edition is now available through London Honey Co. website and selected stores.
