Drop a Glint.

Illuminate and energize rooms with swirls of color and light with Jill Henrietta Davis' gorgeous glass oil lamp. In each luminous sculpture, Jill has captured the natural beauty and simplicity of a bead of dew in mid drop. Perfect as a radiant centerpiece indoors or outdoors on a patio, each sea-toned droplet comes with enough paraffin lamp oil to burn for approximately 80 hours, with no need to trim or replace its wick. Since Jill forms every piece in her Rhode Island studio by hand, each functional sculpture possesses its own one-of-a-kind patterning, color and texture. Sold separately.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Made from
fiberglass, paraffin wax, borosilicate glass
Measurements
5" H x 4.5" Dia.
Notes
To clean, gently wash by hand.

Item comes gift packaged with 1 16oz. lamp oil for approx. 80 hours of burning time, fiberglass wick, borosilicate glass wick holder, funnel, and safety instructions.

Fiberglass wick does not burn - it simply carries the lamp oil and allows the oil to burn. The added advantage of fiberglass wick is that because the wick isn't burning, it is not creating any soot, or other particulates, which means that you get a very clean burning candle.

Many different paraffin lamp oils may be used to refill this oil candle, including scented and citronella oils.

Keep away from flammable material. Never leave burning candle unattended.

Jill Henrietta Davis

In 1988, after experimenting with many different materials and art forms, artist Jill Henrietta Davis was first exposed to the wonders of molten glass and immediately fell under its spell. Sixteen years, a BFA and an MFA later, she remains as smitten as ever.

"Glass can do things that would be impossible with any other material, and although the learning process is quite difficult, once you gain a little fluency, blowing glass is just plain fun," Jill says. "I try to convey this fun by blending humor with fine craftsmanship in my designs." collection

Jill Henrietta Davis' latest design is appropriately named. The lotus flower represents purity, and this beautiful oil candle burns clean! Does Jill's handmade, functional art have your vote?

This kinda reminds of a molotov cocktail - just waiting to be knocked over and oil splashed everywhere and on fire. I have cats and have watched them knock over things, luckily, none have ever been on fire.

These lit at night outside on the patio would be just beautiful.

So pretty and with a wick that doesn't need to be replaced, you save extra money!

I think this is a beautiful, relaxing item, but I've seen similar for a lot less than $40.

Oil lamps are the 90's. I remember having these but not fondly enough to purchase again. In case you are wondering - I'm 33.

I feel like these have been done.

Tricia

Very pretty. Not sure how environmentally friendly the "lamp oil" is? Even though it's clean burning. This would be my hesitation to buy it.

Elena

Very pretty but it's been done.

not for me

can you reuse the lamp - or buy replacement oil?

Summer

I like the idea of never needing to replace the wick.

Doesn't look like a stable base.

Not unique enough to be an uncommon good.

Leslie

I have seen similar for less than $30, but I like them!

Ashley

I like the idea but what about after you burn it for 24 hours? Also seems small for the price and a little dangerous to leave lying around.

Pat
Vote: Thumbs up!

A bit pricey-$25 max for me

Kim

These are lovely and I appreciate that they're handmade, but I just don't see myself taking the time to make sure they are filled properly. I would also be concerned about the mess the oil would make if I were to spill it!

The simplicity of design makes this item very versatile. Arrange several in a table design, use one on the bathroom counter, light the mantle with any nymber you choose...colors are exquisite, reflected shadows of light dance on the walls.

I gave these out as gifts for people in my wedding party. Everyone loved them and I've noticed that they're all still on display in the recipients' homes four years later.

Thanks for the question, Jorden! The lamps each come with a 16 ounce bottle of parrafin lamp oil. The wick sits in a small glass tube that lifts out of the opening so you can easily refill the candle.

My parents friends had stuff like this back in the 90's. Too soon to be nostalgic, too old to be interesting.

They are BEAUTIFUL, but $40 is just took high a price. I might go for $20, but even that is a bit steep.

This needs to have some sort of stand to ensure that it doesn't cause my house to end up a pile of ashes. It looks dangerous.

Looks like a big fire hazard.
