Natural Light Candle Company Workshop
It takes eleven talented pairs of hands to pour; craft; paint; and hand finish each Natural Light Candle.
The talented artisans are busy each day in the Natural Light Candle Company’s open air workshop, designing new styles and handcrafting Natural Light Candles. The Natural Light Candle Company uses safe, nontoxic materials in their production and use very little machinery and energy in the candle making process. The workshop was also chosen by Global Resources as a “Model Factory of Asia” for its product quality and business practices.
All Natural Light Candles are made using traditional craft skills such as carving and hand painting combined with just the right mix of chemistry, fragrance know-how, and lots of love. The care that goes into making these earth-friendly, beeswax blend candles is so beautifully portrayed in the video to the right.
Turn up the volume and see why we are so absolutely in love.
Meet the Natural Light Candle Company’s Designer:
“I believe that hand crafted objects bring joy to the crafter and to the beholder. I love the workshop environment and the privilege of being able to create things each day” – Kelly Marciano
Kelly is a craft advocate, lover of fine art and life-time student of art history. Originally from the USA, Kelly made her home in Bali in 1997and started making beeswax candles. This was the birth of the Natural Light Candle Company brand.
Kelly currently divides her time between designing candles, managing production, environmental projects and her children. One of her environmental projects was being the founding member of Ratu Lestari Alami (Queen Bees for Sustainability), a nonprofit group whose goal is to conduct environmental research on bees and to support and assist sustainable beekeeping and forestry within Indonesia in order to help reduce the world- wide decline of bees.
Working alongside fellow artisans, blending traditional candle-making methods with fine art techniques and award winning designs, Kelly has turned the craft of candle making into a sophisticated art that are appreciated by many around the world.
