Artisan Gift Set


Our new Limited Edition Artisan Gift Sets celebrate the expertise and creativity of women makers in our community. Minimalist, ceramic vessels by X C A pair with our coziest scents for the holiday season. Each candle is accompanied by custom Vena Vena Handcrafted leather coasters, bespoke and perfectly matched to the stoneware. Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, expect slight variation in each unique piece. Please enjoy these artisan containers after candles have finished burning.

Candles are available in 3 finishes and scents:

  • Warm Brown with Big Sir 
  • Velvet Black with Mojave Dessert
  • Hunter Green with Half Moon Bae

4”W, 2.5”H, approximately 8.45oz of soy wax with double cotton wicks.
