Created by Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux (1827-1875) around 1870, the bust "Pourquoi naître esclave" (Why be born a Slave) was commissioned by the City of Paris to represent one of the cardinal points. Brought to life in collaboration with the Plaster Cast Workshop of the Rmn- Grand Palais, this 35cm creation stands as a timeless tribute to human labour. Carpeaux's desire for faithful representations of human form led him to depict his African slave in a captured, yet rebellious stance. It's said the female model may have also been present in Charles Cordier's 1861 "Capresse des colonies."

What Makes Us Different

Craftsmanship & Philosophies

Glassblowing is an ancient technique that is used to shap each of our signature Kandl blue vessels. Our hand-poured candles and carefully selected wicks are exquisite masterpieces of design and luxury. All of our signature Kandl blue vessel candles are assembled locally in Toronto, Canada in small batches and each carry its own unique characteristic - no two handblown glass vessels are exactly the same.

Materials & Testing

We use only the cleanest and finest ingredients that have been rigorously tested, ensuring only the cleanest and safest are used. Our quality highly fragrant wax blend holds more fragrance than traditional candles.

Development & Quality

With over 40 years of history in the candle industry our sophisticated fragrances have been developed with the top fragrance houses in the world. We believe that the essence of a candle comes from the attention given to the intricate details in the process of its creation.

Community & Involvement

We are dedicated to giving back to the community and supporting charitable local organizations. We are especially devoted to contributing to Sunnybrook Hospital through, Chefs’ Circle Dinner Series, in support of Sunnybrook’s world-renowned researchers and clinical teams in discovering game-changing new treatments and providing patients with world-class care when it matters most.
