Waxx

About this project

This project was inspired by the process used to make Spanish Churros. The hand built machine heats up a water bath which surrounds a tube of wax beads & an internal spool of wick. The wax is then softened & extruded through various shaped dies creating unique candles.

The candles can vary in colour and shape, however, the process of being an unpredictable form is key to translate the Churros process. Churros are dropped into hot oil to cook; the wax is dropped into cold water to form.
