"I first met Ms. Yonezawa in 2001 when she contacted me to order candles. As our business relationship grew, so did our friendship. We made plans for her to visit my studio and it was during this time she expressed an interest in the candle making process. So, I begin teaching her how to make candles.

It was obvious to me from the beginning that she instinctively knew what it took to make a beautifully crafted and well burning candle. But that was not enough for her...she needed more.

Throughout the years we have kept in touch and I have watched her grow as not only an extraordinary candle maker but a gifted wax artist. I am continually amazed at how she has used wax to capture her environment and inspirations and reflect them in her creations. 

Ms. Yonezawa needed more and she never disappoints. It is my privilege to be a part of this journey…"

About Claudia Simes

"When creating a work of art, I think the most important thing is the creative process. It is a time when I get to step outside of my own thoughts; express my capabilities and discover my limitations. When  I find myself challenged while creating something, I try a number of different ideas and during this time I find that another door opens. Typically, this leads to another project.

Most of my inspiration come from nature. I embrace different textures as well as colors. It is this environment that fuels my imagination.

Just like my art, I consider myself a work in progress."
