Dīpā is an oil lamp with a coiled wick.
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.
Included parts are a lamp, a wick and a wick holder.
Use: Pour the oil (max 25 ml) 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.
Oil is not included in the price.
The oil should be of suitable quality for indoor use.
Materials: Hand finished solid brass
Dīpā Tall: Ø 50 mm, H 50 mm
Dīpā Wide: Ø 100 mm, H 20 mm
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.
