Founded by Frederick Bouchardy in 2006, Joya is an NYC design studio with a focus on fragrances and ceramics—a perfect pairing for our CH Omakase edition candles. Joya’s philosophy is one of balance and beauty—they create elegant pieces, but also use locally sourced raw materials, use sustainable packaging and maintain ethical production processes.
For 2017’s CH Omakase, Joya crafted an edition of 100 candles. Each porcelain vessel is hand-marbled exclusively for us; it’s a process that can not be done at scale. The results are exquisite, black and white vessels—and each one is unique. Filled with a soy, vegetable and beeswax blend, the candle gives off a forest aroma.
