This season we decided to focus on those things that we treasure. As a marked year in history, 2020 did not seem right for the Jonathan Ward brand to release another new candle. Working with a fellow craftsman and jewellery designer, who like us, makes each of his adornments by hand. Over the years he has collected gold, platinum and silver dust as he carves and crafts. The dust contaminates, the second it touches the work surface so can never be melted down purely. We decided it could be quite wonderful to engrave our signature logo into the Jonathan Ward Italian glass and fill the engraving with the precious metal. Modern luxury up-cycling using the discards of luxury.

Jonathan Ward candles are hand poured using a certified organic wax blend. Complex fragrances delivered in the cleanest way. British craftsmanship, global spirit.

An antique hip flask could be seen bulging through the coarse wool of the soldier’s uniform jacket. Resting against heart rather than hip, every beat inspired a drip… drip… drip… of cognac into the raw hem. His voice sore from chanting the love songs of the troop, he stopped to catch a breath. One hand on knee and one hand snatched at wild dill seed…

The spirit of this aroma builds from the love songs that soldiers sang to sweethearts when walking to war from Moscow.

The warm and heartfelt spirit of man captured in spilled cognac, a tangled tobacco strand caught in briar and ripped wild dill seed and pepper create the most unusual outdoor collage.
