The Bow Candles
Krystel CÃ¡rdenas is an Ecuadorian artist based in Barcelona. With a background in architecture and textile sheâs been recently exploring the possibilities of wax and candle-making as a new language in her practice. Krystelâs candles are meant to be lightened into the ethereal. With three to five flames burning at the same time, hidden wicks becoming strings of fire, melting wax pouring into new unadverted forms, the piece is only complete once burned in a ritual of ephemeral beauty.
