PIERA BOCHNER

Piera Bochner is an artist and candle maker based in Brooklyn, NYC. The shapes for her candles come from pre-existing shapes often chosen from the local markets near her home in NYC. 

Each candle is created by melting various and unique colours of wax, pouring them into the moulds and waiting for each layer to dry before adding an additional colour. No two candles are ever the same and the colour combinations are endless! 

The candles are artworks in their own right and look perfectly at home on display through the house. Light the candle to watch the shape and colours merge and evolve over time to create a new object in variations of their original form.
