Viking Vax is a line of fun, handmade commercial products made from wax. Founded in 2015, Viking Vax started as the outgrowth of a work called Radical Chic that I made for a 2004 exhibition in Moviken, Sweden, and which featured a giant lighted hand grenade. Because stearin is a pure and clean material, it lent itself well to the idea of the Peace Grenade that became a multiple from this exhibition. From there evolved various ideas involving the entertaining use of stearin, wicks, and light.
