A Little About Voluspa Candles
At Voluspa, we believe that though our eyes show us the world, it’s what we breathe in that brings us closer to it. Every fragrance enables a personal journey of discovery that brings the best of the world into your world and expands your horizons along the way.
Voluspa began in a California kitchen, as a labor of love—for the world, and all the ways scent lets you explore it. From the first handcrafted collection, Voluspa has grown into a global celebration of scent; with each new fragrance designed to take your senses on a flight of fancy, and transport you through your daydreams—to a time, a place, a moment, as vivid as a memory.

In all ways, Voluspa is the product of passion, chased and fulfilled— built around a team with a wealth of expertise and a collective devotion to bringing beauty and inspiration into your home, so that it may light your way— wherever your journeys may lead.
Meet Sharon Nowlan
Making somethings from nothings is a very satisfying thing. I’ve been doing it since I was old enough to empty the toilet paper roll onto the floor to make doll furniture or some such thing. The world is a piece of art that is waiting to happen. So often a moment will catch my attention and beg to be captured. I could draw it, or photograph it or mould it in clay. I choose to set it in stone and other natural objects I find.
I began this art medium about 19 years ago. My son was three and gathered the first handful of pebbles that ended up in my first mixed media work of art. I’ve been working on my craft ever since. Evolving, designing, adding new elements such as drift wood, twigs, sea glass, ink, and wire. I will continue to find new ways to capture the beauty of life that is all around us.
My home and studio is in the heart of a little seaside town, Pictou, Nova Scotia, Canada.
The Sid Dickens Story
Internationally renowned for his historical, symbolic and sometimes gothic motifs, sensual dark tones, and sculpted tridimensional tiles, he has been adding fantasy and rebellion to each of his creations for over 25 years.
Dickens’ rescued-from-the-past relics decorate hotels, restaurants and private homes from New York to Tokyo.
Initially trained as a sculptor, Sid Dickens was quickly distinguished in the early 90s for his groundbreaking, unconventional, and prolific Memory Blocks. Describing himself as extremely motivated and a relentless beholder, Sid continues to take inspiration from his travels and constant research around the world.
