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.


Featured in Family Circle magazine.

Sold individually.

“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.

My sister and I gave this to our parents for their anniversary gift. We thought this to be pricey for something this size, but splitting the cost made it doable. It looks really nice when lit up and our parents enjoyed it. The projection is only about 8-10in tall and it needs to be in a really dark shadow or wall in the room to show up well.

Had expectations that were not quite met with this item...I'm usually thrilled with my Uncommon Goods purchases, but not so much this time...a rare miss...I wanted to do something creative with a blank wall in my home and thought this would do the trick (I bought the Pine)...in fact I had planned to eventually buy several more and group them to create a "forest" effect on my wall...it's a beautiful little oil lamp, but it does have to be placed very close to a wall in order to get a nice crisp image, and the shadow cast is smaller than I had expected....in my opinion, not worth the price.

        Our boss has endured a long battle with a broken foot and was having her final surgery. We wanted to send something that would signify new life and cOwing out of the shadows of pain. She loves it, and can celebrate this new season every time she sees it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was very prompt. I would have liked to include a message to her to explain the gift, but I put it in an email to her.

            Not sure how much we'll actually light it, but when we have so far, it's cast a very delicate image on the wall. The image isn't large or especially well-defined, but it is attractive and added a nice ambiance to the room.

            The lamp has found a home and though I'm disappointed that it doesn't cast a large detailed shadow (except in pitch black), it was well received by my wife and it looks good on the shelf
