In the original Indian Sanskrit, Dipā means lamp or light. Available in two different sizes and proportions, each oil lamp is meticulously crafted from hand finished solid brass. Composed of a simple cylinder with carefully rounded edges, both versions hold a cotton wick at the center to produce a flame that rises from the surface of an inscribed basin. The gentle flicker is reflected and amplified in the polished surface of the shallow depression, creating a radiating glow that softly lights the darkness.
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.
