Beeswax lanterns, candles and ornaments are hand crafted in a design studio located in the Nantahala National Forest. Premium-grade beeswax is sustainably collected from bees – also known as nature’s 3D printer – and formed with dried, wild flora collected from around the North Carolina highlands resulting in large and small lanterns. After lighting the tea light in the center, these beeswax lanterns emit a stunning glow and subtle honey fragrance. Visitors to the studio will find individually crafted beeswax ornaments, pillar candles, cards and table lamps. Join in an insightful discussion about the life cycle of and science behind crafting with beeswax with Stecoah artisans Crim and Jeff Bassett. Take a stroll outside and soak up the architectural details on this AIGA award-winning masterpiece of the Lower Stecoah Valley.
