August 2008 Challenge Entry – Soy Candle Handcrafted Ceramic – Key Lime Scent by MadHattersPottery

leave a comment »



EFC August Challenge Theme – Hot, Hot, Hot

This pot is glazed in a fun splash of oranges, golden-yellows and lime green on a background of speckled sand. It is filled with Key Lime fragrance, an energizing balance of zesty, tart, and sweet notes that are true to its name. Measures 2 inches high by 5 inches wide at its widest points.

All my pottery is handmade of earthenware clay, thrown on the wheel or hand built and embellished or textured, glazed and fired in my studio. All pieces are totally unique and one of a kind.

My artisan quality, highly scented candles are made from 100% soy wax and hand poured, one at a time. Candles made from soy wax are a sustainable alternative to paraffin candles (paraffin being a petroleum-based product.) A cleaner burn, a cleaner world. Little by little, one light at a time.

Gift wrapping is available. Please inquire.

Doctors Without Borders
http://www.doctorswithborders.org

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971.

Today, MSF provides aid in nearly 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters. MSF provides independent, impartial assistance to those most in need. MSF reserves the right to speak out to bring attention to neglected crises, to challenge inadequacies or abuse of the aid system, and to advocate for improved medical treatments and protocols.

In 1999, MSF received the Nobel Peace Prize.

EFC Team donated $60.00 to this charity in August.

In August, EFC individual members donated
