Suistanable beautiful candles & lamp shades
Handmade one by one in London
My name is Ana Bridgewater, this is my 3rd year as artist and director of Abalon UK. Over the years I have lived, worked and exhibited in the US, UK and Spain. My background is sculpture and I have been working with porcelain for over 15 years.
My goal is to create a brand that is 100% green and sustainable. The main materials are sourced from the UK and I only use porcelain from Stoke-on-Trent. My signature is a lip of 24k gold. Every piece is unique, and they all have a long process on the making that can last for more than a month, transforming each piece into precious vase that is unique. Some of them have a sapphire and emerald or a blue London topaz.
I look for the natural beauty of the materials that I use, and the balance in between them, letting the elements themselves do the work. For candles for example, I use raw porcelain, gold and a wick with EcoSoy-wax. Just 4 ingredients transformed by the basic elements: Earth for the porcelain, Water for making the slip, Air for drying and Fire. We refill and hire the vases for hospitality & events creating a circle of minimum impact on waste.
