blooming candles   were created in the months following the covid outbreak as an antidote to the frenetic disconnection of modern life and as a means of holding temporal space and ceremony around constant and cataclysmic loss (informed by experiences with adhd). 

as of 2021 the "store" is closed but candles may be made to order on a one-off basis and may take up to 3 months for delivery 

UPDATE: candles sold at artisan markets via River Valley Guild

changing form,

we do not disappear
