can't hold a candle to it...

so the candle project is going slower than i might have thought, but still progressing. i'll have some pretty little pieces to show for it.

of course, even though you know that i'm making them, i'm still pretending that it's a secret because i won't claim authorship on easter morning when they get given away to random people.

i like random gifts, random prizes.

i've always thought the world would be a nicer place if there were random gifts; things of beauty or usefulness or humor given to people just because they happened to show up.

i guess if you want to live in a world like that, you have to create it.

a friend of mine asked if i was really going to give these things away to unknown people.

yes. i did, and i will. when you do it in this way, they become gifts of place rather than gifts of person. and it isn't about me, funny little artist; it's about an environment of surprise and delight, a place of generosity.


i'm posting the gallery of the candles over here where i keep such things, and i'll update those photos as i have more candles finished.

Hello "Flask." I noticed that you became a follower of my blog. I am honored that you would choose to do so - truly. I took a peek around your site. Nice photos and nice candle work, and I like the fact that you intend to give some away—even to strangers. (At least that what I thought I read.) Thank you again, and "stay tooned."
