about the designer
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. The candle becomes both a functional object when its purpose is enacted, as well as an ever-changing sculptural form when inert.
