Women working in an art studio in rural coastal South Africa—many of them single mothers supporting extended families—paint this one-of-a-kind cube candle by hand. Using non-toxic pigments, paraffin wax, and a cotton wick for a clean and steady burn, they add cheerful stripes, doodles, and flowers that bring a glow to any setting.
