Copito is a project by Clara Infante, a natural dyer and multidisciplinary maker and artist based near Barcelona, Spain. Her explorations with plant and earth pigments are often manifested through her sculptural wax creations.
This pure beeswax candle by Copito is hand-dipped in the Garraf region just south of Barcelona, Spain. The turbillon has a twisted, corkscrew sort of shape, measures 2.5-3 cm wide and 25 cm tall. Each candle is shaped by hand and fits standard sized candelabra. As they are made by hand, please expect slight variations in shape and size. Their burn time is approximately 6-8 hours. Trim the wick (to about 0.7cm) if you would like the candle to burn slowly and do not leave the burning candle in a drafty spot where it can burn unevenly (and is also a hazard). Collect any leftover wax and reuse it to make playful candles or in other home-crafts.
Please practice fire safety, and never leave a burning candle unattended. For best results, burn over a plate or ceramic candle dish to avoid spilling hot wax on your furniture.
