Abalon is our Supplier of the Week, 3 – 9 October.
Started only a year ago, Abalon offers a beautiful collection of thoughtfully designed and sustainable candles. With some patterns planned and others as the result of experimentation, the nature of the work makes each piece truly unique, and results in plenty of attention.
We spoke with the artist behind it all, Ana, to find out more.
Where did the idea for Abalon come from?
Abalon is my AKA as an artist (it is a contraction of my real name and surname).
Abalon Porcelain started 1 year ago as a demand from friends, family and contacts asking if I was doing more of my wedding candles.
It started with the sunset S size, a pot that I threw in November 2015, trying to make a present for my wedding guests that represented love. This was a translucent, porcelain shell candle, delicate but strong, ended with a gold lip, designed to represent the rings. The candles are designed so that you can clean them, refill them, reuse as a holder, plant pot or to put your little treasures in.
