My name is Ana Bridgewater, and Abalon is my alias as an artst. Over the years I have lived, worked and exhibited in the US, UK and Spain. I have been working with porcelain for over a decade – it´s an amazing material that comes direct from earth. I love it for its hardiness translucence, and sonority.
Inside the Brand
Translucent porcelain candles, Handmade in London.
My goal is to use natural raw and eco-friendly ingredients, sourced as much as possible from the UK. For the candles I only use porcelain from Stoke-on-Trent, and noble minerals such as gold, platinum and copper. Also pigments such as carbon, cobalt or red iron oxide.
I look for the natural beauty of the ingredients that I use, and the balance in between them, leIng the elements themselves do the work. For my sunset candle for example, one of my classic candles, I use raw porcelain, gold and a wick in pure EcoSoy-Wax – just 4 ingredients transformed by the basic elements: Earth for the porcelain, Water for making the slip, Air for drying the cast, Fire for the kiln.
I use recycled cardboard for my packaging and encourage my customers to refill or reuse their candle holders and to keep the packaging for this purpose.
