The Swanky Candle Collection has been curated with love. Truly artisan, each candle is hand-poured in small batches, using a botanical soy blend wax, clean wicks and eco-friendly fragrances.

The candle line includes eclectic hand-made vessels, chic glass options and soy melt bars. All artwork is done by in-house abstract Artist Michelle Curran.

Artisan Candles

The Swanky Candle Collection wouldn’t be complete without vivid and hand-crafted candle options. With a unique line of Artisan vessels completely handmade and individually painted, I’m bringing fun and functional Art to you.

My concrete vessels are carefully crafted in a week-long curation process. After dried and sealed, each candle is hand-poured in small batches, ensuring quality with each and every candle made.

Meet the Artist

South Carolina based abstract Artist, who lights a candle every time I’m at my easel. It only made sense to dive head first into the world of candle making and here we are! I’m drawn to anything unique, and I find solace in art, and I’m on a mission to share my passion with the world.
Self-taught, I began painting with watercolor in 2013 and have since broadened my horizon to large-scale abstracts. It was a seamless and exciting transition for me to use my palette knife on concrete candle vessels.

Since the launch of the collection in 2021 I have shipped my candles to 28 states, and counting!

“Art that smells good” is the entire vibe and not only will this aromatic Art smell amazing, it will look cool sitting in your space. Each candle is curated with love at my in-home studio, with a house full of boys, using eco-friendly wicks, sustainable vessels, and clean fragrance oils.
