With GLASS and OIL CANDLES Studio About has reinterpreted the traditional candle. The collection consists of coloured glass candles filled with oil. The glass candles are available in 5 colours: rose, transparent, smoke, blue and yellow.
The candle has a classic shape, but you avoid candle dripping and buying additional candles.
This glass candle is crafted in delicate pink and is an exciting alternative to the classic white candle with its bright and simple expression.
2 CANDLES IN EACH PACKAGE
This package includes:
2 candles in glass, 21 cm.
Funnel for oil filling.
4 wicks, with a burning time of over 1000 hours per piece.
DECORATE WITH GLASS CANDLES
The glass candle in delicate pink creates warmth and can be used in many ways. Use it in the evening placed in the window or on the breakfast table in the morning. The glass candle is an alternative to the wax candle.
The candle can be used in an ordinary candlestick and will work beautifully as part of a decoration. As the design is minimalist and light, it also puts a decorative touch on the shelf or the windowsill.
Explore also the series of LINK candlesticks, where the elegant glass candles fit perfect.
HIGH-QUALITY GLASS CANDLE
The glass candles are mouth-blown and made of solid-coloured borosilicate glass. This type of glass is resistant to large temperature fluctuations, so you do not have to be afraid that the glass will burst when the light is on. The glass is also scratch-resistant, so it will not get any scratches nor lose colour over time.
Should the glass candle need to be cleaned, you can simply wash it with water and liquid soap.
BURNING TIME AND LAMP OIL
Oil and wicks have a great influence on how long your candle will burn, and we have tested a range of lamp oils to find the best oil for these particular glass candles.
We recommend that you use Alaska lamp oil. Alaska lamp oil is a common lamp oil, which is odour- and soot-free. Choose your oil with care as it has a great influence on how and how long the candles burn.
However, please be aware that the glass candles are not regular candles which means that the flame is not as dry as a regular candle.
Alaska oil works well for indoor use and can be bought where you usually buy your lamp oil.
A filled candle can burn for about 5-8 hours continuously, depending on the type of 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.
The glass candles are from Studio About, which is a Danish design studio. All objects are designed by architect Mikkel Lang Mikkelsen.
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 3-5 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.
