Woodpecker and Weasel

Woodpecker & Weasel

Woodpecker and Weasel is ran by the creative and thoughtful Clare Sullivan from her home in Cornwall. 

Clare is a lover of art, Cornwall and all things vintage. By combining the three she came up with the wonderful idea of Woodpecker and Weasel, creating gorgeous bespoke candles in the idealic seaside town of Falmouth.

Having began the business in early 2015, Clare has had great success in making fascinating candles that involve using things such as tea cups, oyster shells and vintage jelly moulds. These very unique items make fantastic gifts and look adorable in any home. 
“I love finding new uses for old unloved objects. I seek out beautiful vintage jelly moulds, English bone china tea cups and gorgeous cut glasses then hand pour them with 100% soy wax. I specialise in using local Oyster shells which would otherwise be dis-guarded, I fill them with soy wax and paint them to create some truly gorgeous objects.”
