Earth, Wick & Fire is a small, family based business located in Excelsior, Minnesota. Our hand crafted stone oil candles are made out of natural slate that varies in beautiful mineral colors and textures. During the creation of each candle the characteristics and design are controlled by the composition of the slate and the artist. With the use of a small rock hammer and the controlled pressure of the strike to the slate, the design simply starts with that first strike to see how it will fracture. The break inspires us to continue to move around the piece, in a fashion of interest and inspiration, allowing the slate to come alive. There are never two candles exactly alike.
Earth, Wick & Fire has created a maintenance free, low profile candle that you will enjoy for years, just add oil. Our fiberglass wicks do not burn away and each copper wick holder is hand crafted. The reservoir holds 1 oz. of lamp oil and will burn for approximately 4 to 5 hours before putting itself out.

I am an Internationally Certified Henna Artist with over 20 years experience. Henna is a body decoration traditionally practiced in India, the Middle East and parts of Africa. I use all-natural Rajasthani Henna mixed with a blend of essential oils, tea, and sugar. (I DO NOT use black henna as this can cause unwanted allergic reactions.) My mom (Shakun Maheshwari of Shakuntala Design) and I have been doing henna in the Twin Cities for over 20 years - most notably at the Festival of Nations in St Paul. I have a number of henna style gift items as well such as cards and journals.

I am a Henna Artist of Indian descent where Henna is part of our culture. I am a versatile henna artist and enjoy doing intricate traditional, modern and fusion designs. I enjoy doing intricate bridal and other celebratory designs as well as simple ones.

Henna is extracted from the leaf of a plant by drying and grinding. It is a temporary body art which can be applied with a tube or cone like icing on a cake.

My artwork can be described as GREEN ART.
I repurpose, reuse  and recycle trash, junk or everyday objects. Repurposed plastic silverware becomes a hanging pendant light. Recyclables become a chandelier. Plastic drinking bottles become a crystal light and puzzle pieces are repurposed into a redesigned fruit bowl. Reusing trash to create art, lighting and home decor. Less trash more art!

All about enhanced color, drama, light, fantasy, movement, emotion - my original photographs transition from realistic presentation to an almost abstract derivative surrealism – all for others to experience my emotional re-discovery of these unforgettable experiences.
All entirely produced in my studio, each image is a unique single edition work printed on metallic photographic paper laminated directly to UV filtering acrylic and backed by another opaque layer of acrylic – an expensive risk-ridden process.
