FRANKLIN — Carmex is celebrating 75 years of being in business in southeast Wisconsin.
Mixed-media artist Lisa Pavelka created 366 custom Carmex lip balm jars, one for each day this year. The collection is part of ayear-long celebration to honor the 75th anniversary of Carma Laboratories in Franklin.
Pavelka said her inspiration for each container came from different places.
“Some of them are technique based on the techniques I have learned others or developed over the years, in the mediums I work in other ones are images to people in my life, thematic concepts for my birthday,” said Pavelka. “There’s jars that have shout outs to various causes like breast cancer and of course obviously there’s holidays.”
