The ceramic vessel of the Provider Store Ama Candle (Dots) is made in a small workshop in Tajimi, Japan, with white gloss decorated with navy hand-painted diagonal dots leading to a contrast base. This textured cup houses a candle in the label's No. 4 scent, 'Daku,' a combination of earthy fig, oak, caramel, and patchouli with a subtle blend of fruity, floral, woody, and spiced tones.
Among their selections of slow-made homewares, Provider Store's candles have garnered attention not only for their subtly rich fragrances but for the beautifully crafted vessels into which the candles are hand-poured at the label's Surrey Hills headquarters. These beautiful ceramic vessels sourced from artisans across Japan also form an important part of Provider Store's genesis story: it was a trip to Japan during which she met many of these very craftspeople that inspired Tara Bennett to start the label in 2014.
