Handcrafted by Pittsburgh-based North Ave Candles and inspired by the Mattress Factory Garden Installation by sculptor Winifred Lutz. The Sandalwood + Wild Grasses candle comes in a gift box with a matching front label and a side label that details the Garden, a permanent outdoor installation at the Mattress Factory.
Lutz began work on the Garden in 1993, after having studied the site for five years. The Garden Installation is a living work that responds to and incorporates the history of the site, including the foundation of a building that burned many years ago. Materials include but are not limited to stone from a western Pennsylvania quarry, wood, rebar, and brick. Both newly-planted trees and indigenous wild flowers attract birds into the urban garden.
