Artist Profile - Deepa Dasgupta,  Keiora Candles

Deepa, the creative genius behind Keiora candles has created a unique range of hand poured soy candles with exquisite Australian fragrances in beautiful reusable tins.  Over time, Deepa has experimented to develop a stable of truly unique designs and fragrances.  “With help from my small team, we hand pour every single candle and make sure that each is perfect and smells divine, leaving behind a beautiful experience for those who come across them”.

Deepa is especially proud of Keiora’s collaboration with Zachary Bennett-Brook, an award-winning contemporary Indigenous artist of Torres Strait Islander ancestry born and raised in Dharawal Country (Wollongong). Three of Zachary’s designs grace the beautiful reusable candle tins into which Deepa hand pours her intoxicating soy candle fragrances – a unique approach that allows the tins to be reused and up-cycled, as they are objects of beauty in their own right.
