Crash was created in 2005 to help artists and designers find new ways to promote their work. Starting with paper product designers, and later working with surface designers and emerging artists, Crash has developed candle products that showcase the artists' talent. At their small, vintage building in the Chicago, Illinois area, a unique, complex fragrance is selected to complement each design that is developed. The designs are fired on the glass tumblers, becoming permanent, so that the glass can be reused and become part of your life. They have created each candle to be a little bit of functional art for your home or workplace, meant to stimulate the senses, and enhance any environment. Crash candles are made in Des Plaines, IL using components made in the USA.
