Paulova is a small scale business of handmade, thoughtfully crafted products. Our current line for 2018 includes ceramics, candles and fragrance.

Inspired by the functional and simple beauty of Scandinavian design, Paulova ceramics are timeless pieces for the home. Each vessel is hand-thrown on a potter’s wheel, making every piece unique. Our glazes are hand blended and all of our clay is locally sourced. We use stoneware clay for durability and stone-matte glazes for a luxurious look and feel.

Paulova candles and fragrances are made in small batches from the finest, natural ingredients, and are free of palm, paraffin and phthalates.

Our solid perfumes are made with organic and natural ingredients which are safe for skin application.

Our candles are all hand poured with a natural blend of coconut, soy and beeswax, infused with essential oils, resins and premium grade perfume oils. Although significantly more costly, we choose to add essential oils to our candles to achieve a more authentic scent. We also use lead-free, cotton wicks.

While it is often not disclosed, it is common practice to add palm wax or paraffin in coconut and soy wax candles as a stabilizer. We have chosen to add beeswax instead. It is a more expensive option, but we prefer to offer you a cleaner burning candle.

All Paulova products are handmade in Portland, Oregon.
