Pollumination: Eco-chic Candles + Ceramics
It all started in 2018 when God put a dream on my heart at 3am while I was pregnant with my son. My dream was of making colorful, handcrafted candles that could be re-used as flower pots, seeds included! I had zero experience with ceramics or candle-making when I started my business.
The name “Pollumination” is a play on the words “Pollination: Illuminated;” Each Flower Pot Candle (and every other purchase!) includes wildflower seed paper to be planted in your candle after burning or directly in your garden to attract & preserve our pollinators.
Meet the Maker
After years spent doodling creative ideas every chance she had while working in the medical insurance field, Lauren's lifelong dream of becoming a creative entrepreneur took flight. Along with creating functional & unique pieces, Lauren's passion began in photography. This is utilized well in this business, allowing her to photograph her own products. Lauren attributes spending her teenage years in the darkroom developing film and photographs by hand as the catalyst that taught her to appreciate artistic processes of patience. Ceramics is definitely that! If Lauren is not in her studio, fondly coined the "Creative Cottage," you can find her chasing her adventurous toddler, Landon.
Cultivating sustainable beauty while shining light on the environmental issue of pollination is the mission of my brand.
