Notes: Poured Candles and Trims serves as an intriguing peek into 1960s hobbies—specifically, candle-making! Throughout these pages, humble wax is molded, twisted, curly-cued, dyed and scented into myriad forms. Sadly, there isn't a single aesthetically appealing example pictured here—most of the pictured examples range from mildly disturbing, to oh-my-God-poke-my-eyes-out terrifying.
