WILLOW WHIP CANDLES (article first published : 2003-11-18)

Seen at the Essenwood Craft Market on Saturdays, Marianna van Heerden presents her range of Willow Whip Candles.

The imposing patio candles with banana leaf design (R134) or floral tissue style (R95) range alongside the guinea fowl (R56), Aroma Vanilla (R26) or Batik Vanilla (R26).

Candlemaking has turned from a hobby into a business for Marianna who has been occupied full-time with her craft for ten years. She loves working with her hands and is always changing her designs which range from African ethnic to the gently floral. Her price range is sensible with the smallest candles easily affordable at R10. Her largest candle has four wicks, weighs 5½kg and costs R160. A set of charming dinner candles costs a reasonable R12.

Her tradename of Willow Whip stems from the fact that Marianna is an ardent horsewoman and once had a horse named Willow Whip which she lost when it died tragically.

She lives in Hillcrest and now employs two assistants. She exports her work to the UK and is shortly to be reaching the Swedish and American markets. She also supplies a number of interior decorators with exclusive ranges.
