With a comfortable groove for your thumb, the Inaba Pinch Candle is both practical and aesthetically pleasing. The indigo and cream vessel is crafted in Gifu, Japan, and the pure soy wax poured in our Surry Hills studio. We design each candle to be re-usable. Once your wax burns out, pop up the wick, wash with hot soapy water to use the vessel as a Japanese tea cup, pot planter or vase. For our Sydney friends, you can bring your candle back to our store for a refill.

We first visited this workshop in 2019 and fell in love with their glazes and clay colours. This particular workshop is family run and everything is very hands on. We designed this cup and chose the glaze while we visited the factory.
Ingredients & Craft
Located in Surry Hills, Sydney, is our studio where we pour all our candles by hand. Using pure soy wax and boutique fragrances. Each of our candles are designed to be used past their burn time as they are all Japanese cups.
Simply remove the wick, wash with hot soapy water and you can drink tea from it, or bring it back to the store for a $15 refill.
