Joya x Brooklyn Museum "Plum Rain" (Summer)


For their inaugural multi-sensory partnership, two beloved, innovative Brooklyn-based institutions (one a cult-favorite newcomer, the other on the eve of its 200th anniversary) join forces to evoke the seasons, settings and spirit of Utagawa Hiroshige’s 100 Famous Views of Edo in vivid, meticulous detail.

This project was inspired by the exhibition Hiroshige’s 100 Famous Views of Edo (feat. Takashi Murakami), which presents the Brooklyn Museum’s complete set of 118 prints by the famed Japanese print designer for the first time in more than two decades. The print series is displayed alongside a special installation of new paintings by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, created in direct response to Hiroshige’s designs.

Once your candle is finished and the vessel is ready to be repurposed, we recommend using ary tissue, towel or rag by hand to wipe off any soot (carbon) that may have accumulated on the inside of the container. You should discard this tissue or rag, so using a dish brush is not

advisable. After this process—once the soot has been removed—a hand-wash in soapy water

to remove excess should do the trick. 

For any stubborn, remaining wax elements, leaving the container in a freezer overnight usually encourages the wax to shrink and ultimately pop out. Metal wick stabilizers should also pop out without issue.
