Hand-carved Candles & Christmas Store

A one-woman owned and operated business.

Seeing is believing and you must see Marian Oney as she dips and swirls, dyes and dries the most wonderful candle creations. From hand poured star shaped core candles,Marion starts her work. Marian mixes the colors as she builds up warm layers of wax.Marion dips the core into white wax. Between 40 and 60 repetitions form the medium from which she sculpts these marlevous candles. Taught 9 years ago by a master candlemaker, Marian keeps alive an ancient German art craft. The skill and speed with which she works is amazing.Marion begins to carve the candle. She must carve and place the entire work within 10 minutes or the wax will lose its flexibility and begin to harden. Marion builds the candles layers.

The work is then dipped in an acrylic finish to seal the wax and make the candle washable in cool mild soapy water.The finished candle is dipped in acrylic. Once you have developed your "burn in" of about 2", you place votive candles in the center and your Hand-carved candle can be used for years to come.
