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.
The Provider Store Kuro Candle comes in a vessel of textured black clay with a blue glaze. This textured cup houses a candle in the label's No. 6 scent, 'Komorebi,' a combination of hinoki, cedarwood, Japanese pine, and incense resulting in a deep, woody fragrance.
