Many of the studio's tools and techniques have been developed by artist Gregg Hessel, who is inspired by traditional metalworking methods as well as the desire to invent new techniques for the future.

Hessel's designs look beautiful singly, paired or in a grouping of different heights. The studio recommends beeswax tapers for their slightly sticky surface that works well with the candleholder's tapered openings.

The candle holders are delivered with a highly polished finish. Copper will naturally darken over time unless it is polished from time to time. Many people prefer the natural patina and choose not to remove it. For those who prefer the polished look, occasional use of a good silver polish or a product called "Simichrome", along with periodic buffing with a soft dry cloth, will keep the candleholder looking as fresh as the day it was produced. Dripped candle wax can be removed by holding the area under hot tap water until the wax is soft enough to be wiped away with a soft cloth. Remove all moisture from the surface of the metal; water can spot and discolor copper. Never use anything sharp or abrasive on copper to remove wax.
