KINETIC OIL CHANDELIER
A self extinguishing and relighting chandelier
Any time there is heat, and especially when there is weight change, there is an opportunity for motion.
A small reservoir blown into a long glass tube holds a dose of lamp oil. When lit, the oil burns away. This results in weight loss causing the reservoir and flame to move upward. Once arrived at the apex, using the capillary action of the fiberglass wick and a system of chambers blown in scientific glass, the reservoir is refilled with lamp oil. This weight gain causes the reservoir and flame to move downward.
A radial arrray of hundreds of these long glass tubes, flames at their points and oil reservoirs move in a delicate see-saw motion...performing a slow, random dance.
