Why we love it

Inspired by Inspired by Mae Chee Kaew
Mae Chee Kaew was meditating in the zen garden and on her path to enlightenment. As a monk of the Thai Forest tradition, Kaew was of pure mind and pure heart. The Ponderer candle is a honouring of Kaew’s radiance and gentle spirit, a reminder to celebrate moments of stillness, tranquility and reflection.

The illustrations
A real muse lies behind every illustration which adorns our candles; an elusive and inspirational woman who has inspired & motivated the creative process.

The hat
Trimmings of silk, cotton & brass.
Every LDC candle comes accessorised with a stylish hat, carefully handmade in their delightful Notting Hill studio.

The fine bone china
The candle jars and hats are handmade in England from the finest materials. The china is shaped by some of the most talented artisans in England, many of whom have been shaping china for over 50 years. The fine bone china clay is sustainably sourced and our candles are delicately finished with a hand-painted 22 Carat gold rim.

The measure
9cm high (without hat trimmings) x 7.3cm diameter.

How to use

To keep your candles smelling sublime (and to prevent 'smoking') we ask that you trim the wick to 4mm before each lighting. We also recommend that you allow your candle to burn for a continuous 3-4 hours when lighting for the first time.

The candles have been designed to double as a whimsical decorative object as well as an evocative fragrance enhancer. If you would like to re-use your candle container (after full-burn usage) please follow these simple steps:

Remove the candle hat and place to one side.
Place the candle container under a tap and turn the tap on warm to hot.
Wait some moments for the water to melt the wax and turn off the tap.
Carefully pour the hot water out of the container along with any melted wax.
Repeat the three stages above until all of the wax is removed.
You may also wish to use a spoon or other tool to gently prise any remaining wax out of the conatiner.
