Carruth Studio and Aspen Bay have teamed up to create an exciting line of holiday and seasonal candles, the George Carruth Candle Collection. These highly creative, quality candles in a variety of decorative colors, are all cast directly from George Carruth’s original, hand-carved creations. All of the candles are designed to burn ‘luminary-style’…as the flame burns down into the candle, they come to life, glowing warmly from within. The candles are individually boxed and come in a variety of colors and designs.
Several of the new designs are available as signed pieces right now, although the quantities are limited as George signs a small number of pieces each year. Many Carruth collectors feel that the signature adds special value to sculpture or plaque.
