Piera Bochner is an artist and designer based in Brooklyn, NY. This candle project was birthed from a love of the material of wax and a desire to investigate how wicks, wax, and flames will travel down new and unconventional paths. The shapes come from pre-existing forms, like romanesco broccolis and bitter melons, plucked from the produce stands of Chinatown, Union Square, and the supermarkets of Berlin, then turned into rubber silicone molds. To create the candles, different colored waxes are individually melted and poured into the molds, waiting for each to cool and harden before adding the next, creating the layered effect. The different mixtures of wax colors combined with the melting power of the flame creates endless variations of the original form. The candle becomes both a functional object when its purpose is enacted, as well as an ever-changing sculptural form when inert.

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.
