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 Melbourne Beach, Florida.

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

My cousin tends to be hard to buy for. She has particular tastes which tend to be more high-end. I know she loves candles as well as her essential oil diffuser, so I felt this to be a perfect combo. I love that each piece is hand crafted and therefore unique....so I could truly tell her that her piece is one-of-a-kind. It made an excellent gift when combined with some paraffin oil and a bottle of high quality essential oils. She loved it! It is very beautiful. Delicate yet sturdy, if that makes sense. The colors are gorgeous, and the signature on the bottom made it more "authentic." Absolutely stunning as decoration, yet still functional.

This stays at the end of my long kitchen island so I can see it from the living room. The oil is scented to add a light and pleasant vanilla and lavender aroma. Such a nice shaped and color as well!
