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, Marian mixes the colors as she builds up warm layers of 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. She must carve and
place the entire work within 10 minutes or the wax will lose its flexibility and begin to harden.
The work is then dipped in an acrylic finish to seal the wax and make the candle washable in cool mild soapy
water. 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.
Shown are the 4 basic sizes, plus standard 12" tapers. While Marian offers many currently popular color combinations, custom
colors are a speciality of the house. Send your color swatches for that wedding, anniversary, birthday, open house, reunion, holiday get together or just
your favorite schemes from around the house, and Marian will be glad to match your colors for that uniquely added
decor accent. Nothing adds atmosphere to a room or party like the flickering presence of candles. The 3 most popular
patterns are the Bow, the Butterfly, and woven. However, special decoration for your occasion maybe added such
as angels, Logos, and themes. Contact Marian for complete details and pricing.
