"After spending the last decade working in hospitality, I became fascinated with the industry, and concerned about the bigger environmental issues around the waste created in the food and beverage sector. I decided to take it upon myself to create high quality, sustainable and beautiful products out of excess materials. And thus, Wax / Wine was born, contributing to the circular economy and minimising waste.
I collect and repurpose natural wine bottles from bars and restaurants in east London, and turn them into something new. I am inspired by the biodynamic practice found in winemaking which works alongside the lunar calendar, mirroring the waxing and waning of the moon - a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to agriculture, which is a recurring theme of Wax / Wine as a business model."
