Waxx

waxx

This project was inspired by the process used to make Spanish Churros. Francesca has designed and hand built the Waxx machine which heats up a water bath surrounding a tube of wax beads & an internal spool of wick. The wax is then softened & extruded through various shaped dies creating unique funky candles. 

The candles can vary in colour and shape, however, the process of being an unpredictable form is key to translate the Churros process. Churros are dropped into hot oil to cook; the wax is dropped into cold water to form.

Waxx candles will be available for purchase in the near future.
