Hayley created the design that inspired these luminaries during her junior year at Miss Porter’s School in Farmington. In an advanced pottery workshop, guided by her teacher and mentor, Mrs. Susan Reeder-Moss, Hayley created several beautiful porcelain luminaries, drawn to the challenge of creating a form that would glow warmly when lit to reveal a design hidden inside. Thin, translucent porcelain was the ideal medium. Inspired by her work, The PETIT FAMILY FOUNDATION has partnered with Yankee Candle to create luminaries in her remembrance. While Hayley’s designs varied on each luminary she made, we chose to use our logo, which was generously designed by Wayne Raicik of Cronin and Company, Glastonbury, CT, on this replica of her beautiful work. We offer this luminary to you to honor our beautiful, talented and strong friend; a young woman who glowed with her own promise. We hope you find the same solace in this gift as we have found in the act of making it.
