our roots

From the busy city, to quiet mountain life.

As a broke business undergrad student, candle-making became a creative outlet between writing papers, to be gifted to friends and family for birthdays and holidays. Craving more balance, business courses were complimented by fine arts courses, and post-graduation days off from the office were spent creating and playing with raw materials.

When the decision came to move from the city to a small mountain town, there was only so many times that one could joke about turning a passion into a creating a living, before deciding to give it a shot. So in the process of moving to a slower-paced life, Stone & Ash was born.
