The ceramic vessel of the Provider Store Ama Candle (White Stripes) is made in a small workshop in Tajimi, Japan, with white gloss decorated with navy hand-painted stripes leading to a contrast base. This textured cup houses a candle in the label's No. 3 scent, 'Hikari,' a fragrance balancing open woody and pointed citrus tones combining sandalwood and oud with fir needle and bergamot.
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.
