The architect Mikkel Lang Mikkelsen has, with GLASS, OIL CANDLES designed a modern interpretation of the classic candle. Here, you see the smoke coloured glass candles that suit any occasion and mood with their simple and straightforward design.
The glass light is made of borosilicate glass, which can withstand high-temperature fluctuations. With the glass candles you can continuously enjoy the candlelight and cosiness as the candle is not made of stearin, but instead burns on ordinary lamp oil via the wick. Wicks and funnels are included when you buy a pack of glass candles.

DECORATE WITH LIVING LIGHT
Candles are synonymous with Danish cosiness and it does not require a special occasion to turn on candles on a dark evening. These beautiful candles in smoky glass have a simple and stylish look and are much more than just an ordinary candle. The glass candles work well as part of a table setting but are also beautiful and decorative just as they are.
When it comes to colours, we have become more experimental in our decor and we have said goodbye to simply using white candles a long time ago. This series of glass candles are available in this smoky version, but also in delicate pink, yellow, blue, and transparent. The coloured glasses add a special ambience, and it is easy to use the lights in the decor. The glass candles are designed to fit in almost all vases. You can use your old vintage brass vases, your classic cube or our LINK stage.
MOUTH-BLOWN GLASS LIGHT
The candles are mouth-blown and crafted from borosilicate glass. This type of glass endures large temperature fluctuations so you never have to worry about the glass getting too hot and bursting.
In addition, the glass is also scratch-resistant and keeps its colour - this means that you have a light that will last forever and stay beautiful. If you need to clean it, you can simply wash it with soap and water.
BURNING TIME AND LAMP OIL
Oil and wicks have a great influence on the burning time. We have tested different lamp oils to find the best oil for these glass candles.
We recommend that you use Alaska lamp oil. This oil is a common lamp oil, which is odour- and soot-free. The choice of oil will affect how and how long the lights burn.
The oil from Alaska is good for indoor use and can be purchased in regular stores that carry lamp oil.
When there is approx. 3-4 cm of oil left in your glass light, the flame will be smaller as the wick has difficulty absorbing the oil. This is due to the design and the height of the light.
If you add lamp oil to your glass candle after use, you ensure the best result for both wick and flame the next time you light up the cosiness. It is important that you never split the wicks, as the oil light will burn significantly worse. There are always 4 wicks in a pack of 2 candles.
FILLING UP OIL
Leave the wick in the small glass tube.
Fill with oil using the small funnel provided.
Dab the top of the wick with a drop of oil from the funnel. Let 0.1-0.2 mm wick peek up to the flame.
The light is usually switched off by blowing or using a light extinguisher.
NOTE: MAKE SURE THE GLASS HAS COOLED BEFORE REFILLING.
