ReForm

A kit to create one specific candle.
The process of constructing the candle is a calming one, arousing an intimate moment with ourselves. As this moment is symbolic, so is the moment of the candle’s burning. We watch what we have created, melt away, a metaphoric view on our lives but also a simple and clear explanation on the nature of everything. An easy and visual form of understanding one of life’s key lessons.

The outer shell of the candle is made with paraffin, and the inner one from modeling wax. The inner wax melts more quickly than the outer one, eventually piercing a way through for it to escape.
