The reusable stained glass candle lanterns by Kul Werks began as an idea for partners Mindi and Mark Ferkul soon after they met in art school in the early 1980's. By 1995, with two decades of commercial art, corporate and retail business experience between them, their design-driven concept came to be fully realized. By incorporating current and classic elements from interior and industrial design, art & architecture and aspects of fashion and nature into their designs, their candles are an exquisite, award-winning and stylish collection of functional home décor, with every sublime piece rich with meaning. All lanterns are handcrafted with their own blend of waxes and select architectural stained glass. Compositions are a result of an appreciation of daily life: elements from nature, art, literature, the human spirit and their juxtaposition with light play. Kul Werks utilizes heritage artisanal "slow process" techniques to craft pieces in small batches, without the use of any machinery.
