A product line of functional, artistic sculptures for everyday use, ranging from decorative drinkware, scent diffusers, and oil candles

Hi Kickstarters!

Thank you for checking out my project. My name is Amit Apel and I design residential and commercial properties, from resorts in Asia to mansion's in Malibu.  After spending the last few years developing projects throughout the Los Angeles area, my passion for design has allowed me to gain experience in a variety of exterior to interior concepts, and by request from my clients, I began developing custom furniture and products to enhance their environments. In doing so, I decided to use those concepts to create my own line of functional art that could be affordable and accessible to everyone. With your support, I can get my product line into production and bring it to life!

THE PRODUCT LINE

Marley™: Marley™ is a patented, innovative piece of decorative drinkware. When the natural looking stone base is refrigerated for a ½ hour prior to use, the stone will keep beverages chilled for up to 1 hour. Marley™ DIMs: 7"H x 4.25"W x 5"D. Box DIMs: 6"H x 6"W x 9"D.

Loretta™: Loretta™ was created in the image of an engagement ring and named after my wife. It’s a beautiful oil candle sculpture that will blend in with any environment to add a special touch of warmth and romance. Loretta™ DIMs: 6"H x 4.5"W x 4.5"D. Box DIMs: 4 1/4"H x 5 1/6"W x 8 1/2"D.

Candle Sphere Set™: The candle sphere is our unique interchangeable component among our line. It’s a hollow steel sphere with a 2.5 oz reservoir, and when filled, it will stay lit for up to 4 hours. Our beautiful set of white candle spheres can be placed around your house, out on the patio or as part of a table setting. Candle Sphere DIMs: 2” Diameter / Base-1/4” H. Box DIMs: 3"H x 5"W x 7 1/2"D.

DumDum Server™: Being such a versatile character, we set up DumDum™ with a serving glass so he can be a dinner guest at your table. Use him for drinks, salads, desserts, or any other creative uses. DumDum Server™ DIMs: 7”H x 4”W x 7.75”D. Box DIMs: 13"H x 6"W x 9"D.

DumDum Candle Sphere™: DumDum™ is my favorite character. He’s lovable, he’s sweet, and he looks great in any color. For this version, we have him in a rustic finish; a style that I believe will look great in any setting. He’s great for any small accents you like to put around your home or even to help set the mood for a candle lit dinner. DumDum Candle Sphere™ DIMs: 7”H x 4”W x 7.75”D. Box DIMs: 13"H x 6"W x 9"D.

Genesis™: Genesis™ is one of my first sculptural designs. He’s an aromatic scent diffuser that incorporates our wonderful candle, instead of the usual tea-light candle. All you have to do is fill up the candle sphere, put some scented burning oil into the tray, and light up the fiberglass wick for hours of relaxing aromatherapy. Genesis™ DIMs: 10”H x 4.25”W x 7.5”D. Box DIMs: 13"H x 6"W x 9"D.

Genesis HangingOut™: For those of you with children, pets, or excessive empty wall space, I modified Genesis™ into a wall mounted scent diffuser. He has all the same functions as the original Genesis™, and is great for spas, bathrooms, hallways, or any room that needs a little freshening up. Genesis HangingOut™ DIMs: 7”H x 4”W x 7.75”D. Box DIMs: 13"H x 6"W x 9"D.
