Hessel Studios

Gregg Hessel lives and works in San Rafael, California and makes hand wrought copper candle holders.  Over the years, Gregg has developed techniques and custom tools inspired mainly by the wrought iron and jewellery traditions that allow him to hand forge copper. The desired forms and textures of these divine candle holders are achieved only after going over the surface numerous times with high heat torches and hammers of different shapes and sizes.  It is recommended using beeswax tapers for their slightly sticky surface that works well with the candle holder’s tapered opening.  Connect to the earth and behold an expression of light from these beautiful masterpieces, an appreciation of copper – the master energy conductor.
