Throwing Pots and Making Candles

1 Nov 2017 | 0 comments

The Trill Farm candle pots are skilfully thrown by Bryony in our little pottery. It’s a place of focused, energy in the midst of the activity of the farm’s central courtyard. Romy set up the pottery in order to spend more time being creative and to develop her throwing skills. After 10 years of being at Trill Farm she’s now started to dedicate a few hours a week to making pots.

The candles are made with a blend of our Trill Farm beeswax and a little vegetable wax. The beeswax is gathered from the hives at the edge of the water meadow, in their own deep and wild hedgerow between the cows and the ponds.

Bees are heroes ensuring that pollination happens and as an added benefit we use their honey and a little beeswax. We like to think that there’s a little bit of bee-hero energy in each of the handmade candles.

Here’s to a future of more pots and hives full of healthy bees.

The candle has a spicy warm fragrance of bay leaves and is available as part of our Winter hamper available from from our online shop.
