The oil lamp was hand made out of the highest quality terracotta material. Made to pay privilege to the style using the original method used in crafting it centuries ago. Made to look like an antique.
As every item is hand made and they all differ from one another slightly.
As compared to bronze sculpture, terracotta uses a far simpler and quicker process for creating the finished work with much lower material costs. The easier task of modelling, typically with a limited range of knives and wooden shaping tools, but mainly using the fingers, allows the artist to take a more free and flexible approach. Small details that might be impractical to carve in stone, of hair or costume for example, can easily be accomplished in terracotta, and drapery can sometimes be made up of thin sheets of clay that make it much easier to achieve a realistic effect.
