In the 2010s

In the 2010s, when homes began to double as backdrops for social media posts, the branded candle, or evidence thereof, became ubiquitous. Maybe it was a Le Labo Santal 26 burning serenely alongside a neat stack of fashion books. Maybe it was an already-spent Diptyque variety, the empty glass holder now filled with makeup brushes and perched on the corner of a bathroom sink. Now modern classics, these candles are still around, and still smell as good as ever, but there’s a newer crop of options that are, well, weirder.

These candles, which register as (affordable) art objects and are often intended https://greyombrehair.com/category/magazine/ as such, focus on form, color and process. Take Hannah Jewett’s Sculptural Candles, with curvaceous, abstract https://greyombrehair.com/category/style/ shapes that morph once lit, or Carl Durkow’s playfully stacked pillars, some of which recall the work of the sculptorConstantin Brancusi. The New York-based artist Janie Korn used to make ceramic figurines but found herself wanting to create something that felt more immediate and interactive; she now makes hand-painted wax candles modeled after Wendy Williams, Ally McBeal and a bottle of Kewpie mayonnaise. “When you light a candle,” she says, “there’s an act of performance.” And one of depletion — unlike with https://greyombrehair.com/category/style/ most sculpture, you need not live with a candle for long.
