My friend Jen gifted me this stunning Brooklyn made candle yesterday. It’s the design of Andrej Urem, who hand pours them here in the Gowanus area of Brooklyn. He has several designs that interlock, which means you can stack them. Not sure that’s practical but it sure is fun. Check out the entire collection and don’t let yourself deter you from the low-quality photography on his site. The candles are stunning!
