the first design from our ARCH. candle series
ometepe shares the cultural heritage of hu/bstudio molded in a dormant volcanic structure awaiting eruption. hand poured with all natural non-scented soy wax. the bold and unique shape is inspired by the island volcanoes of ometepe, nicaragua.
inspired by brutalist architecture the base forms shape defining lines and casting shadow within unfinished raw concrete making each handmade base uniquely distinctive and designed with intent to be reused overtime.
both pieces interlock juxtaposing elements of cold and dense concrete with the soft and warm melting texture of wax. a personal encounter illuminating reflection and balance; a relic interpretation of nature and structure.
