Hearth & Hammer is a literary candle studio dedicated to illuminating literature through aromatic storytelling. Owners Ariane Scholl and Andy Kenney make each soy wax candle with high-quality ingredients and lead-free wicks.

All of their soy candles are made with a blend of fragrance and essential oils, and each candle is hand-poured in small batches. The soy wax burns slowly and cleanly, and provides for a highly-fragrant candle.

We are thrilled to be featuring Hearth & Hammer along with 100+ of Chicago?s finest artisans in food, fashion, home goods + art at the Chicago Artisan Market at Morgan Manufacturing (401 N. Morgan St., Chicago) on Sunday, July 22, 2018 from 10am-4pm.

Why Literary Candles?
The makers behind Hearth & Hammer discovered they loved good books and great smelling candles. While reading some of their favorite literary classics, Ariane and Andy started to wonder: what if they created scents to embody their favorite novels? Thus began the journey of formulating and creating their Classic Collection of soy wax candles. Whether you enjoy the smell of Bronte?s English moors or Thoreau?s deep woods, there’s a scent you’re bound (pun intended) to love. Discover your new favorite candle, grab your go-to book and let the scent notes take you away.
