Dead Heads Unite! We developed unique art candles that celebrate the Grateful Dead's legacy and iconography. Now, the iconic Dancing Bears are immortalized as Scented Wax Sculptures!

Available in three colorways and fragrance, the scents are familiar, mouth-watering, candy-inspired and presented as a sophisticated experience—confusing, activating and delighting your chemical senses.Inspired by the artists, ceramicists and designers we work with every day, our “Art School Kids” are represented by the iconic Dancing Bears. In typical fashion, they see their model (Bertha)—and the world—through bear-colored lenses: Fresh, free-spirited imagination fueled by joy and a little bad behavior and, of course, candy.

WARNING: Never allow your candle to burn unattended. Burn the candle within sight and beyond the reach of children and pets. Always leave at least 10 cm between burning candles. Do not burn candle on or close to an object that can catch fire.

Please read instructions for use prior to lighting:

This object is designed primarily for decorative and collectible purposes. It will burn, and it will drip—so care is required. Place candle inside porcelain base on temperature-safe / non-flammable surface, ideally one that can collect a pool of liquid wax.

Burn no more than 2 hours at a time. Trim wicks to ¼ inch prior to each relighting.

Do not allow wick trimmings to accumulate in wax pool. Container may be hot when candle is lit and shortly thereafter. Allow candle to cool completely before moving. Keep candle away from drafts. Discontinue use when ½ inch of wax remains.

Though candle will still burn, wax color may fade or change after 18 months.
