Philip James Candles
Local artisan Philip James has been crafting unique, quality products since the 1970s. He has honed his trade travelling the country incorporating regional styles into his designs. In a sense Phil has been guided on his path and this is evident in the divine qualities his artwork embodies. He produces candles of various sizes and brilliant colors including large round candles called Planets, 15″ Towers that resemble obelisks, small Stars to accentuate the Planets, as well as sand and driftwood candles. Each piece is hand-crafted with care and the wax is poured with loving thoughts. Burning any one of these candles is a truly special experience, as he is well aware of the metaphysical properties associated with energy transfer.
I was first introduced to Philip James Candles at SUNY Fredonia when I was a student there in the ‘90s. Whenever The Candleman was on campus, there was a mad dash to buy. I always had his candles burning in my dorm room. The scent, the glow, everything about them is relaxation and meditation perfection. I was visiting Buffalo today and stopped in to Terrapin Station. I was so excited to see these candles that I bought 2- a Star and a Forgotten Light. I’m burning them now and they are just as magical as I remember. I live in California now and want more! Do you ship?
