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.
