Perfumed with Ngutu Pā
Inspired by embrace; the embracing of bodies, connection, water and land, the Uku candles have been made with uku (clay) gathered from Rangihoua on Waiheke Island by Esther McDonald (Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Wai, Ngāti Pukenga, Ngāti Pakehā) of Thea Ceramics. Rangihoua is a ridgeline which moves into an Awa, under Putiki o Kahumoemoe te maunga, running into Putiki bay and Tikapa Moana. Each uku is unique in in form, and filled with Ngutu Pā, an earthy and animalic fragrance for your space. No two pieces are ever exactly the same, once the candle is at its end it is a timeless sculpture to be kept.
Curionoir uses biodegradable botanical wax and cotton wicks.
The Uku candle burns for 70+ hours.
Proceeds from each Uku go to @protectputiki.
