UP Candle Design was conceived in early 2021 with the intention of creating a different kind of candle - an experience, a story, a connection.
we are Marge and Jure - two introverts behind UP Candle Design with shared love for design, arts, crafts, nature, cats and our two beautifully annoying kids.
Becoming parents made us aware more than ever how we wanted to raise our children in harmony with the values we believed to be important and lasting while exposing them to meaningful experiences that would ignite their imagination.
We wanted to create something with substance that invokes reflection and awareness
in an increasingly consumerist world where mass production has led to a general decrease in value and subsequently to a devastating impact on our environment -
people lost touch and became disconnected.
We wanted to create a product you interact with and use daily that makes you contemplate and become aware. Something conscious and sustainable.
Candle Sculptures born through synergy of Natural material and Expressive form
candle-making and the subtle properties of organic wax was perfect for what we were trying to achieve.
Using 3D technology along with traditional casting and modeling techniques we created our candle sculptures and poured our thoughts and our hearts into them.
None of our candles are exactly the same
and each passes through our hands multiple times before we decide it’s ready to tell it’s Story of Shadow and Light - we hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed making them.
