50 Hours, A Candle for Focus

$ 48.00
Select Title

Shantell Martin and Joya have collaborated on a candle that brings attention to the passage of time. The themes are focus, everyday hours and minutes spent, and the ways in which an artist chooses to spend their time.

The burn time for the whole vessel is approximately 50 hours a.k.a. 3000 minutes. Each layer burns for approximately 25 hours a.k.a. 1500 minutes.

The classic candle glass votive is screen printed and features original artwork drawn and handwritten by Shantell herself. The candle has two wax layers and two different scents.

Each distinctive scent is released after a specific lapse of time and helps to indicate a specific mark of time.
