a little light

During her travels around rural Spain, creator Joanne Schoof was charmed by the local customs and drawn to the work of regional chandlers. Originally trained as a graphic artist, Joanne turned her talents towards the art of candle making. Rather than striving for endless perfection, a little light embraces textural imperfections and the beauty inherent in handmade techniques.
