Utility Objects Ceramic Vessel
We’ve partnered with ceramic artist Aleisha Ellis of Utility Objects to bring you this limited edition, hand-crafted ceramic vessel—perfect for a special candle project. Aleisha’s unique and minimal designs truly showcase the beauty of the natural clay. The finished piece looks elegant on its own, or pairs beautifully with the apothecary jar and gold tin candles from the kit.
More About Our Collaboration with Utility Objects
We’re so excited to introduce you to Aleisha Ellis, the talented ceramic artist behind our stunning candle vessel—created especially for The Crafter’s Box as an optional add-on for our Poured Soy Candles Premium Workshop. Aleisha’s unique designs are minimal yet whimsical and organic, truly showcasing the splendor of the clay. Since 2018, she has been creating natural stoneware ceramics for the home under the brand Utility Objects. Aleisha’s passion for her craft shines through in every one of the ceramic forms she molds in her Atlanta-based pottery design studio. Her inspirations range from Scandinavian design to the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi.
Her ceramic artworks are not only elegant to the eye, but also functional for the home. Form meets function in these stylish pieces and it’s no wonder that Aleisha and her work have been featured in places like Dwell Magazine, New York Magazine, Architectural Digest, and Ceramic Review Magazine.
More About Our Poured Soy Candle Workshop Artists: Melissa & Chad Burgess of Craft & Foster
Husband-and-wife team, Melissa and Chad Burgess, have been creating custom soy candles for six years. The couple grew their business, Craft + Foster, from a local candle pop-up to a nationally recognized brand featured in Neiman Marcus, GQ, FabFitFun, and many more.
Melissa Burgess, wife, mother of four, and military veteran, received her first DIY candle kit in the spring of 2015 and quickly fell in love with the candle-making process. She found that it gave her a creative and therapeutic outlet while juggling the demands of motherhood and processing an ongoing journey with PTSD.
After signing up for a handful of local maker’s markets, Melissa’s unique blends, strong fragrant throws, and muted packaging quickly gained the attention of San Diego consumers and retailers alike. This early success eventually led to her husband Chad leaving corporate America and joining her in this “accidental candle company” full-time.
