About this project
What is The Jacks Candle?Hi Kickstarter!
We are Sculpy, creator of the candle project ‘the Jacks’. We are a team made up of two graphic designers, a 3D artist and a sculptor.We always liked to amaze our friends by creating new things which has never existed before. So we have decided to make a team and create things since when we met in university. We have wished to make our own brand with very unique sensitivity. After working on individual's fields, we started our own company since 2013.
The Jacks candle series is our first challenge seeking for fun and unique ‘things’ in your every daily life.
How did the idea come up?One of our sculpting member's hobby is to make useless things with 3D printer. One day he realized that he had no ashtray so he created a skull looking ashtray for his cigarettes, and Sophie has lighten a candle in it.
How are we making holders and candles?:
Ceramic-When we have started our project, bringing something inside our heads to a real life wasn’t easy. The first problem was to choose the right material for the holder.
In the beginning, there were numerous technical difficulty producing whole body without separating in pieces. So we chose to divide the body into three different parts and gluing them together after making the parts separately.
But in a baking process, three different parts were twisted and made lines on the surfaces of the ceramic. That wasn’t what we wanted.
We didn’t give up and started making molds by ourselves. We have repeated numerous simulations with computer and created a mold with 3d printer which was more precise than a human hand.
Finally we could lessen the pieces of mold from 17 to 5 and we could create whole body in one piece.
Gold Skull Holder
for 'The Jacks Mania' reward just stocked from pottery. They look great and even attractive :)
*You can choose white, black or gold version on survey.
It is almost there to reach $100,000 and only 2 days left !!!
Candles-We thought it was all over after achieving final prototype of ceramic holder but it was just a beginning of our journey. Making a candle also wasn’t very easy. We had to create beautiful, stable candle design which could form dripping of wax as a tear flowing from the skull but we have failed many times.
- Pure cotton (yellow) -Like a cloth just got cleaned and sun dried pleasant scent will fill your space with fragrance that will refresh your feelings.

Which stage are we on?
We will be fully ready to step up to mass production right after the campaign is over. We are planning to participate directly in production just in case there is an unexpected problems.
It will take approximately 2-2.5 months for the production and to get it delivered to your locations.
And this is our timeline.
Stretch GoalWith the supports from the kickstarters The Jacks will start the melting series.
NEW GOAL - $120,000
We could not be indifferent to think of stretch goal with this enormous funding from our backers. We thought it was great idea to make a coaster which will prevent you from cleaning up the tears melted down to the ground.
If we achieve $120,000 we will provide all backers one coaster who has pledged more than $42.
(Starts from Rabbit Mania / Deer Mania and above)
We will update the design and image of the actual coaster as soon as it gets completed.
*Future retail estimated price: $22*
Why do we need money?For mass production, we will have to build more silicone molds and purchase production tools.
We are planning to add another stage for quality assurance so the only candles with the best quality can be delivered.
We have been developing first melting series of The Jacks for a year now.
Currently, we are leasing a 3D printer to keep up with developing new ideas. But this lease takes high portion of our expenses and this is causing many problems such as lack of development for new products and marketing.
We wish to solve this problem through the kickstarter campaign.
***To purchase refill candles please increase your pledge amount by adding surcharge for refill candles. You may order more than one refill candles by adding proper amount. [Price of candle multiplied by requested quantity]
We are going to send e-mails to you requesting for above details. (if campaign goes successfully)
