A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Invented by artist Adam Frank, this modern little oil candle casts an enchanting shadow from a tiny, stainless steel tree. As the flame flickers, the shadow of the tree moves like a light breeze is rustling its branches. A unique twist on a normal candle. Give one to your favorite hostess or light several at your next dinner party. The shadow's intensity and size will be affected by additional light in the room - the darker the room, the better the results. Comes with two containers of odorless, clean-burning liquid wax that last 17 hours each. Available in five styles (from left to right): Cedar, Nest, Magnolia, Pine, and Bloom. Set of two refills also available. Made in Brooklyn.

“When I was 4, my mother would give me old TVs and radios and hand me a hammer and screw driver. I made a bunch of stuff and begged to plug them in. No one let me, thank God.”

Adam Frank experiments with light, shadow, and interaction. His pieces combine fine art, toys, and home accents, and each carries an air of mystery that blurs the line between fantasy and reality. He began his career working at George Coates Performance Works, a high-technology theater company in San Francisco, where he specialized in computer graphics and creating 3D digital environments and effects that interacted with actors on stage. Now, Adam designs and produces artwork, products, and toys that benefit from his talent for creating environments and interactive characters. His work has been exhibited and installed all over the world, including a large-scale installation of his Lucid Mirror concept at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Lumen Oil Candle Shadow Projectors:

    I had given these as Christmas gifts and had to own it for myself so I bought 3 for me. I love the reflection it casts on the wall and it only adds to any decor. When entertaining, they are a great conversation piece and everyone has asked me where I bought them. A simple yet beautiful idea they are well worth the investment and I plan on collecting the whole set.

      It's difficult to buy for people who already have everything, but when I saw these I knew they were unique. They loved them so much that I ordered a few for myself. They add a beautiful ambiance to any room and I love the shadows they throw up on the wall, to bring a bit of nature into the home. Great gift!

              Comments about UncommonGoods Lumen Oil Candle Shadow Projectors:

              This is a great gift product. Wonderful packaging and care/pride in product is evident. Adequate fuel conveys. This was an anniversary gift and was perfect for a simple but effective gift. We keep it simple on that day. However, this is a great gift idea for any occasion. Take care in the upper part of the piece (the part that creates the shadow). It can bend if not properly handled. It may even cut you if you don't handle with care. But that isn't too big an issue if handled and displayed properly. Keep out of reach of children.

              Service and delivery comments:

              AWESOME packaging. Care was evident. The packaging was a gift in and of itself. The delivery options were adequate and it was delivered swiftly.

                  think laid back evening, low lights, coffee and easy music. The shadow needs a dark place to show up good. It is small, so don't expect large shadow.
