The ceramic vessel of the Provider Store Hida Candle is made in a family-run workshop in Seto, Japan. With a base of red clay and glazed beige clay over it, this textured cup houses a candle of the label's No. 7 scent, 'Onsen,' a combination of hinoki, cedar, frankincense, and sandalwood for a light, woody fragrance.
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.
