Behind the Candles

When the pandemic hit, costume designer David Ochoa turned candle-maker, created a series of unique wax wonders from his Venice Beach bungalow.

Taking inspiration from sculptural artists & a mid-century modern aesthetic, David’s candles have a southern Californian vibe burnt into their DNA.

One-of-a-kind candles, architecturally influenced with a sense of humor. Range from an 80s boom box, a
Palm Springs inspired mid century modern house & the iconic Hollywood sign collab with The Academy Awards Museum & City of Hollywood; unusual hues include a gradient technique & eccentric color blocking. 

 The Davie Ocho Candle Co. is constantly expanding & building a large library of unique & bespoke candles.

 Prices range from $60 to $220.
