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 Ocean Pines, Maryland.

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

            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.

                    A Gift as Unique as its Recipient

                    Comments about UncommonGoods Pottery Oil Candle:

                    UncommonGoods is my go-to place for special presents, and when I saw this oil lamp, I knew it was right for my daughter-in-law who lights up our world with her love. A beautiful lamp would reflect what we see in her.
                    Additionally, this singular piece of art is American made, and we try to buy American whenever we can.
                    It was delivered on time, and it was packaged well. We have only seen it in the online catalogue and via Skype, but it looked on Skype as it did in the catalogue, and that gives me confidence to buy again. A review pointed out that it was small, so when I saw that on Skype, I was not surprised. It will be pretty as a decoration or as a lamp.
                    If I have one minor complaint, it is that I had to go elsewhere for oil for the lamp, and it would have been nice to have at least a sample size included with the lamp.
