We are open in the Oxo Tower, with more Kasama Pottery arriving soon.
Based in Kawagoe, north of Tokyo, candle makers Haze conduct gentle explorations in the traditional material of Japan wax.
Japan wax is name given to the material obtained from the berries of sumac trees, and in particular the variety known as haze (pronounced ha-zeh) in Japan.
From their studio, Haze make each candle by hand, combining the rare Japan wax with even rarer rush and traditional paper wicks.
Haze describes the particular characteristic of the candles they make as being in the dancing flame and the gentle noise that they emit. The candles do not produce scent, and instead calm their owner with their presence. Each flame is one off, and never to be repeated.
