Troubled by the endless sea of mindless pick-me-ups and disposable products in today’s market, artist Angela Sands sought out to introduce a product that would stand the test of time – both in quality and timeless beauty. Thus, in February of 2010, Luminology was born.
A graphic designer by trade, Angela often felt chained to her desk and longed to create something tangible with her hands. After studying the art of candle-making, she slowly unearthed the missing piece in today’s consumption-driven market, and at the same time, fulﬁlled her own desire to step away from the computer.
Marrying her clean, modern aesthetic with the time-honored tradition of pottery-making, Angela designed a candle inspired by her love for the soft crackle of oversized cement ﬁre pits. Hand-crafted by local artisans daily, each porcelain vessel represents the beauty in imperfection; the elegance in the everyday.
Made with pure ingredients and minimal packaging, Luminology is an expression of restraint and simplicity. Angela is much the same, seeking to live a life with mindful intention and effortless beauty. She currently lives in Davenport, Iowa, with her husband and two perfectly imperfect children.
