Dīpā Oil Lamp
Machined and hand finished in solid brass, each cylindrical lamp houses a hidden reservoir of oil to fuel the cotton wick at its center. The polished spherical basin softly reflects the flickering light, echoing the luminary extent of the flame.
Available in two different sizes and proportions.
Includes: Lamp, a wick and a wick holder.
Ritual: Pour up to 25ml of oil into the lamp until nearly full. Insert the wick into the wick holder and place it into the lamp with the wick protruding out by 4 mm. Allow the wick to soak for a few minutes before lighting it. Excess oil (if any) can be wiped off.
Materials: Hand finished solid brass
Dimensions: Tall: 50mm x 50mm Wide: 20mm x 100mm
Care instructions: We find beauty in the marks of unique character, subtle variations of grain, figure, and texture inherent in materials that deepen through use and patinate over time.
The lamps can be semi-regularly polished with any brass cleaning agent to recover its original shiny gold look. However, we recommend it be left to age naturally.
