Here at the BSP, we have a bit of a passion for gracefully repurposed goods. We also have a bit of a passion for people who create things out of pure love. The marriage of these two combined with fantastic design and bespoke products? Sheesh. It’s like we hit the lottery. Today’s giveaway is all about real, pure love for what you do. What better way could we represent this month’s theme?
Shem Gott is a husband and father living in Southern California who decided to repurpose his baby’s glass food jars by pouring wax into them to make candles. (Genius idea, yes?) Gott’s passion to create a cleaner burning candle turned his part time hobby into his full time passion and Mr. B’s Luminaries was born. Every candle is hand poured and every step from start to finish has that human touch that mass produced items just can’t give you. If you are anything like me, you feel that lighting a candle in your home is a ritualistic endeavor that brings peace and thoughtfulness into the home. To use a candle that inspires these emotions in its purest form just seems obvious. You can choose from candles with no fragrance oils added (my personal choice) or find one with an essential oil that gives you exactly the scent you need. Regardless, Mr. B’s Luminaries is a treasure.
