Shantell Martin Collaborates With Joya Studio on New Candles

Including a hand-painted ceramic XL candle.

Each time Shantell Martin showcases new work, it’s an invitation for artist’s and non-artist’s alike to be in the present and reconnect with their own creativity. Well-known for her black-and-white drawings and installations, the British visual artist, teacher and philosopher creates many of her pieces amidst a live audience — forcing herself to create with an unconscious flow.

Martin’s latest collaboration with Joya Studio seeks to bring that meditative spirit to one’s home or office. The capsule presents a classic candle with the artist’s hand-drawn messages screen printed across the glass votive. The candle features two wax layers: a darker layer with top notes of clary sage, lavender, chamomile and Cardamom Guatemala; heart notes of geranium, rose blossom, lily and coconut; and drydown hints of violet leaf, amber and pale musk. The lighter bottom layer of wax emits top notes of cyclamen, shaded green tea and ocean air, heart notes of heliotrope, vanilla flower, tuberose and jasmine petals, and drydown hints of cedar leaf, amber and sweet musk.

For the collectors out there, Martin also created a highly limited three-wick XL candle that is hand-painted by the artist. As an edition of seven, each limited-edition porcelain vessel is created with an even more complex wax layering process that allows multiple scents to burn together. As time is a central theme within her work, each distinctive scent helps indicate a specific moment in the burning process.

The Shantell Martin x Joya screen printed candle is available to purchase online for $48 USD, while the larger hand-painted ceramic vessel is available for $700 USD.

Elsewhere, MIMA will spotlight the connection between art and boxing in new exhibition.
