"The Candles that we are now able to cast, from shapes that we gather, strike me as beautiful and fascinating."

In short, when someone tells me about their experience with a candle that I made : They gave them as a gift... They lit them for a special occasion... They’re saving them for a special occasion...

 It doesn’t point to me. 

It points to the shape of that cutting. 

Beauty in Nature.

Wow : What Could Be Better Than That ?
