The Migration oil candle from Perhacs Studio is a modern take on the traditional oil lamp. Individually handmade from precision machined stainless steel, solid hardwood, and a borosilicate glass tube, combined with a long lasting fiberglass wick. Enjoy a single Migration oil candle or combine them together in different configurations and create an almost infinite array of stunning designs.

THE INSPIRATION / We set out to elevate the traditional oil candle to a new level. In the design process we would think of them in poetic terms, sentient beings with fiery souls migrating in herds across the desert at night, their flames lighting the way as they travel. We hope that you enjoy them as much as we do... Happy burning! All candle parts, excluding the glass tubes and fiberglass wicks, are handmade by Perhacs Studio in Los Angeles California ;)

The single oil candle comes in an exquisitely designed custom laser cut package that includes a card with example photographs, info/instruction sheet, stainless steel funnel, and fill gauge.

NOTE ON THE BRASS VS. STAINLESS STEEL MACHINED TORCH ASSEMBLIES: While stainless steel is very hard, non corrosive, and durable metal, the brass version is  much softer, can show scratches more easily, and will change in color and tarnish  over time. We like this process of aging and change over time. We think of it as a natural, and beautiful, process of patina. However if you would like to spiff up, either the brass, or stainless version, there is an easy process to bring both back to that brand new brushed look, that most anyone can do themselves at home with a power drill and a Scotch-Brite pad. We will be posting a "how to" video on our website soon, or reach out to us directly for guidance on how to do so :)

P.S. You can also use them as a beautifully modern flower vase with the torch assembly removed... Just be sure to wash out any residual lamp oil of course ;)
