Human, Zach Whitman
"i am human watch me fuck this up"
This poetry collection is a collaboration between Thompson Ferrier and New York City poet and artist, Zach Whitman. Zach's work has been featured around the world and is now available to you in raw form as a scented candle.
Each label is designed and handmade by the author on a 1950's typewriter.
Our candles are handmade in NY with all natural essential oils, a proprietary soy wax blend, and a lead-free cotton wick which ensures a clean burn.
This vessel is amber glass with a black lid.
Seems some may feel these labels offensive and childlike. Nah, I am DEFINITELY not a child but while I have dealt with an IMMENSE amount of life tragedies (fiance dying at 29 after time in Afghanistan, having to divorce my husband of almost 13 years of marriage because of physical and verbal abuse to our boys, my mom dying of leukemia?) I find that life is WAY TOO SHORT and we find laughter in small things. And these candles? Completely enjoyable and the labels are just FUNNY. You just cant be TOO SERIOUS. It's a CANDLE. So thank YOU Thomas Ferrier for keeping life LIGHT (pun INTENDED)...
Hi Kathlene, I just wanted to say thank you for being so open here... You're definitely a strong woman (stronger than most) and I appreciate you sharing your story with us. Thank you for being part of our community and bless you for keeping your head up. YOU are the one keeping life LIGHT! ❤️❤️❤️
I find these candles very offensive and there is no place in my home for them what a step down for this company. Sounds like you would be a great hit with campus fraternities
I am sad to see this message. I support four artists. Zach is one that I find deep in emotion and ability to capture moments in peoples lives. Admitting that we are human and we as humans can and will fail sometimes, is empowerment of our shortcomings. The context of what I do is really important. Please take a moment to look at all the words I associate with for this brand. I see the positive side of this. The language is what it is, but the message might not be clear to you. Be it a fraternity or a home, both these places house people and people are not perfect.
I stand behind the words of Zach Whitman and am proud to associate the brand with him and his words:
Following is a reply by the artist directly
failure is honorable
but the rest of us
have accepted it as growth
in the fight to stay sane.
i wish you peace
