Genie Not Included

Inspired by ancient oil lamps found in archaeological digs, this design by Erik Hertz brings the appeal of handmade pottery to light. The design was also inspired by necessity: Erik lives in a part of Maryland where electricity outages are frequent, so he developed this glazed stoneware "candle" as backup lighting for his studio. It includes a fiberglass wick that won't deteriorate and smolder like cotton. Simply fill it with liquid Paraffin for a clean-burning alternative to smoky candles and spotty electrical service. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil for a more aromatic experience. Handmade in Melbourne Beach, Florida.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Pottery Oil Candle:

                This product is even more beautiful than the pictures show - my step-mother loved it!! The only potential issue was that it didn't come with oil - so I recommend buying that separately if you're giving this as a gift.
