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 bought this candle for a birthday gift for my sister who absoulutely loves candles. She said that it is very cool and she really loves it. It could maybe be a little bigger so the reflection would be bigger.

Service and delivery comments:

Product arrived in the time I expected it to arrive. The product was wrapped very well with bubble wrap and such. It was in excellent condition when it arrived.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Lumen Oil Candle Shadow Projectors:

    Bought this for my Arabic Teacher after graduation. She grew up in Lebanon and hasn't had a chance to go back in 40 years. Needless to say I bought the Cedar Tree candle and she cried when she opened it. She's thanked me countless times. Uncommon Goods makes unforgettable gifts :)
