Piera Bochner


Piera Bochner is an artist and designer based in Brooklyn, NY.

Piera creates handmade, unscented candles moulded from exotic fruits and vegetables poured in brightly coloured layers. She says: “this candle project was birthed from a love of material of wax and a desire to investigate how wax wicks and flames will travel down unconventional paths.” The moulds for the candles are taken from Romanesco Broccoli, Sugar Apples, and Bitter melons; fresh produce found in the markets of Berlin and New York’s Chinatown and Union Square.

Piera’s candles have been featured in Vogue.
