Moon Alley California Poppies Candles


Inspired by the California state flower.  When lit, the play of light from the flame brings life to the surface of the candle, like light shining through stained glass.  Once a sufficient amount of wax has melted, a “refill” votive candle can be placed in the well, ensuring that your Moon Alley Candle will last and last.   Dimensions:   Large is 8.75 to 9 inches tall by 4 inches in diameter, Medium is 4.5 inches tall by 4 inches in diameter, Small is 3.75 to 4 inches tall by 3.5 inches in diameter. 



Moon Alley candles are entirely handcrafted in Murphys, California.  The original technique used to create the candles is a result of years of development, reflecting the artists’ love of color, classic design, candlelight and the creative process.  Once lit, the play of light from the flame brings life to the surface of the candle.  The illuminated design is a union of beauty and function. Follow these tips to preserve the beauty and extend the life of your candle.  Burn Candles in draft-free areas.  Do not allow the hot pool of wax to extend past the inner edge of top disc (or within a half inch from candle’s edge).  Burning the candle for too short of duration can resullt in a narrow well wich will not allow for extended burn time or area to place refill kit.   Keep wick trimmed to 1/4 inch.   A refill votive may be placed within the candle once a sufficient amount of wax has been burnt from the candle.  Please refer to the burning instructions above.   Below – Moon Alley Candles on the dining room table at the Jabberwock Inn.
