Item of the Day

I like odd things. I also like fire.
As a latch key kid from the 'burbs, this recalls a time period where I experimeted with pyrotechnics or more plainly "let's see how #(%(* blows up!" This included aerosol cans, plastics, and whatever random item I could hide from my mom's attention.
The irreverent design puts a smile on my face and deviltry in my heart. Ah, memories.
The Dutch designer Piet Houtenbos made these from real US Army surplus grenades (!!) and they are reusable and burn for 24 hours. It even comes in 3 colors: neutral, silver, and gold (bling, bling).
Hand Grenade Oil Lamp Collection, $60, Lekker
