Meet The Maker - Jonathan Adler of Jonathan Adler

We recently met with Jonathan Adler, creator of Jonathan Adler designs and candles. Jonathan's creative career started with making pots as a child in summer camp. His passion for pottery continued and evolved into a massive and unique retro design business. He has stores throughout the US and was the lead judge on the Bravo TV show Top Design. If you've never looked at his website, please do. It's fun and beautiful and incredibly hysterical. Be sure to read his full bio and for a good laugh check out his manifesto.

The inspiration for Jonthan Adler's candles comes from the many places he has traveled - Capri, Big Sur, Southampton, Palm Beach, and his favorite place, Shelter Island. He is most proud of his Muse vase and used that for his Muse Blanc and Muse Noir candles. One of our favorite and fun candles is his Hashish candle. It' is poured in the most beautiful porcelain container and the fragrance is fabulous - a very sophisticated earthy scent.

Thanks to Amy Tomaszewski of IL for submitting her question for our Meet The Maker Series. We're sending you a beautiful Jonathan Adler candle today!
