Stone Oil Lamp
  • Stone Oil Lamp

    Based on the traditonal Stone Oil Lamps (Kal Vilakku) in South India, this two tiered holder is perfect accent piece that can hold flowers at the bottom and candle at the top. The form and function is a minimal contemporised version of the traditional past, suitable for the homes and lifestyle of today. Handmade in Mahabalipuram, the materiality of stone contributes to its raw texture and visual weight. 


    Mahabalipuram (or Mamallapuram), located along southeastern India’s coromandel coast, was a celebrated port city of the Pallavas. The group of monuments consists of rock-cut cave temples, monolithic structures and bas -relief sculptures. Though these majestic edifices were created between the 6th and 9th centuries, the scratch and scrunch of stone, the tonk of hammer and chisel, screech of the drill can still be heard from its current inhabitants - its sculptors. Our collection stemmed from a visit to the town and a hesitation to choose between a Sculpture and Mortar pestle as souvenir. We believe, there can be more to offer.
