One of the great things about shopping at Rala is enjoying the special connection we have with our artists. We wanted to share more about them, so we are introducing a new blog feature: Artist Spotlight.
First up: Pollen Arts. These two kick-butt people are Peter and Juwels from Flagstaff, AZ. The proverbial wearers of many hats, they keep themselves very busy, but always make time for the incredible nature that surrounds them. When they are not taking in beautiful sunsets, they are making pure beeswax candles, raising goats and chickens, saving and relocating unwanted swarms of bees, AND raising their new baby girl, Lily. Shoo!
They started out 7 years ago in California making antique bottle-shaped beeswax candles in their home-on-wheels: a 1975 Winnebago named Miss Winnie. Since then, they've settled into a picturesque plot of land in Arizona where they live, love and pour candles in their new studio built in a 1968 trailer they named: The Hive.
By purchasing Pollen Arts products, you are helping save the bee population in America. By shopping at Rala, you are supporting artists all across the USA.
Look at that: you're a hero!
