Frank made us aware that we couldn’t produce what we had in mind because it was illegal to import glazes into the country San it was used as a way to smuggle cocaine and similar looking substances into the country so it had been banned decades ago. That spelled the end of our once thriving fine ceramics industry.
Walking around his workshop sparked the idea of using clay vessels for our hand-poured candles. We were about to launch and the plan was to use imported Glass vessels. This was one little way we could support the craft industry in Ghana.
Frank makes every single one of our clay vessels for our candles. They are made individually on the potter’s wheel with care and precision.
For each candle you purchase from us, you are going to experience the 30-plus years of pottery experience of Frank, in a unique hand made jar.
As a studio, we are committed to empowering local African craftsmen by utilizing their unique skills in our value chain.
