Artisans + Suppliers
The Provisions Co. Collection is the result of local, Ohio-based creative collaboration. I'm happy to share these artisans and suppliers with you.
I am an abstract expressionist painter. I am always looking for patterns and connections, causes and effects, and structures in chaos and imperfections. I am a seeker of truth in all things around me. Expressing myself with abstract art is a continuation of my seeking. I like the conscious and subconscious aspects of painting. I like the endless possibilities. My Painting is a microcosm of LIFE; an opening and unfolding of choices: mistakes and successes. And then, there are the mistakes that are successes. Painting is a meditative, personal experience of exploration which informs me daily.
“We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand.” - Pablo Picasso

Up and running since 1887, Bags by Troy Sunshade (formerly The Troy Carriage Sunshade Company) has grown and the product offerings have expanded. What remains unchanged after 125 years is their business philosophy, “There Is No Substitute For Quality."

The Candle Lab
From their humble beginnings in 2006 as a small candle shop in the Worthington neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio, The Candle Lab has grown to multiple stores in Columbus, Cincinnati, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. All store locations offer hand-poured candles in over 120 fragrances, ranging from spicy to masculine, floral and beyond. The company uses natural soy wax, pure fragrance oils, and cotton paper wicks for a candle that is long-lasting, clean burning, and true to scent. The Candle Lab team created Timber Spice and Cranberry Pine for the Provisions Co. collection. | website

Jess Nielsen, Lead Curator of Provisions Co. and Owner of The Olivine Design Studio, has been fascinated by heritage and design since a very young age. From a small agricultural town of 865 people, Jess was raised to value deep family roots, resilient faith and strong work ethic.
After earning a degree in Commercial Interior Design from the Columbus College of Art & Design, she worked for various architectural design firms around the United States, designing commercial spaces and the products and graphics within them. In 2015, Jess founded The Olivine Design Studio, an Ohio-based studio focused on elevating design on a local level.
A note from Jess...
My heritage has deeply inspired and shaped my life and work, and honoring that heritage is what fuels me to create with relentless authenticity. Provisions Co. is a collection of goods I co-designed with other local, like-minded artisans.
I'm incredibly proud to share these collections with you. My hope is that I help provision your home and life with quality goods that last for generations to come.
Thank you for stopping by Provisions Co.
