|Richard began his creative journey with whimsical wood sculptures built for family and friends and at their encouragement, he offered his work for sale to the public. Through much trial and error, experimentation and frustration, his interests evolved and settled on re-purposing granite countertop material. He taught himself to cut, shape, polish and drill granite into Cheese Boards, Lazy-Susans and finally Stone Candles. He has long since given up dumpster diving and now offers only upgraded Granite, Marble, Quartz and other natural stone. Richard's exclusive polished edge treatment sets him apart from other stone candle makers. He now devotes his time to making the most beautiful and exotic stone candle creations on the market today.
Each piece is a One of One (one of a kind) creation. These can be used indoors or outdoors -- only use “Ultra-Pure Paraffin Oil” as fuel. This can be purchased at Home Depot, Lowe’s, Michael’s, Ace Hardware and other retail stores. The wicks are fiberglass and do not burn and will last indefinitely (burn time is approximately about 4 to 4 ˝ hours). Resist using glass cleaner and granite countertop cleaning compounds on the stone surfaces.
