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. Sold individually. Set of two refills also available. Made in Brooklyn.

Comments about LUMEN OIL CANDLE SHADOW PROJECTORS:

The lumen is attractive and works as advertised. It sets a nice relaxed mood and really is a great addition to my wife's bathroom decorations.
The only drawback is there is no insulating material between the decorative piece on top that creates the shadow and the body of the lumen. So, the entire lumen gets very hot--too hot to handle if it needs to be moved after only a few minutes of use.

    Comments about LUMEN OIL CANDLE SHADOW PROJECTORS:

    Great idea but it barely projects shadow. Candle fixture must be close to wall to project image in very dark room. I got the pine tree and shadow was rather insignificant. Thought it might be brighter & bigger!

        This is a really cool product, but I can't say much for how it actually works because I gave it as a a gift and haven't seen it in action. It is a bit smaller than I expected but maybe the dimensions were posted and I just didn't look. It's so cool though, I still think I want to get one for myself!

        Cool concept for hefty price...

          Comments about LUMEN OIL CANDLE SHADOW PROJECTORS:

          When I saw these candles, I immediately was drawn to the concept. My wife takes baths when she needs a break from her busy life and I realized what a need gift idea this would be since our bathroom lends itself to their use. But wow, the price! Pretty hefty for the tiny thing that it is. I shopped around and as near as I can tell, these are the only folks doing this...so I paid the price. Very pleased with the product, however. She loved it.

          As others have said, this only casts a clear shadow over a small area, pretty much only in the dark. After all, it is powered by the flame of only a single candle. So be aware. But sitting on the edge of a bubble bath, casting its shadow on the nearest wall...very beautiful and a thoughtful gift for the right person.

              Loved the idea of the product, but it needs to be pitch black in order for it to work. Also, it has to be so close to the wall the shadow ends up being small. Not worth the money at all, very disappointed

                          Was hard to find a room dark enough to cast the tree shadow. Wish it was easier to use.
