Wonderful handmade paper flower candles by Momoca. These bring such joy! Momoca made these special for our shop- we were very excited to bring in blues and whites to go with beautiful table settings in the same or contrasting colors.
These are all one piece- with the flower stems inserted into the candle. Each flower is made of a translucent paper, hand cut and handpainted, then attached to wires that go into the sides of the candle. These are for decoration only- they cannot be burned. This style is 11.5" long and has 8 paper flowers. The color is a light blue. The candlestick by Astier de VIllatte is sold separately.
Momoca is an artist based in San Francisco. She has explored many different fields, from millinery and fashion, to painting and ceramics, to photography and art installations. Momoca is currently working with transparent paper to create 2-D and 3-D objects. Her background in pattern making of hats and clothing as well as the Origami all Japanese children learn, inspire her to create imaginative paper installations and decorations. One of our favorite collaborations she routinely works on is with Alice Waters at Chez Panisse making decorations for special events.
