These statues were made in celebration of my ten years working in the service industry and every coworker I shared a shift with. Restaurant labor is both precarious and unsustainable much like a burning candle or the weight of a heavy cocktail tray on a wrist… If lit, these candles will burn from the wrist to the elbow (about 8 hours) and leave you with a colorful open hand as a keepsake. Please note there may be some minor variance in color as each candle is made by hand using natural pigments.
