Does anyone know a form for an Aladdin's lamp (oil lamp usage) or where I
might find a commercial mold I can pour in the studio? Is there such a
thing out there? I have an order from a client and so far haven't come up
with anything that 'look's' like a Genie would want to pop out of.

Throw a bottle, then tip it sideways, round the base and flatten one of the
sides. You can figure out the angle you like. Cut a lid out of the top side
of the bottle, and alter the shape of the bottle as desired.
Alternatively, you could hand-build the "lamp", or treat it like a short,
squat teapot to which you will add a long, tapering spout.

Dear Llewellyn. ever since i saw the movie "the thief of Bagdad" when i was
just a kid, the aladins lamp intreauged me. I looked high and low to find
any lamp, that resembled the genies lamp, but could never find one. , so I
designed and made my own, and made a two piece mold. it turned out to my
likeing, and i sold a number of them, since the movie Aaladin came out about
that same time. it is functional oil lamp, and burns well. the first few
had no lid, so the oil had to be put in the spout, but later i dedided to cut
(slanted) a lid for easier filling. was in Pigeon Forge, Tenn a few years
ago, and visited pigwon forge pottery, and found a lamp which I liked and
purchased . Its a wee bit larger than mine though. mylamp is 9" long, 4"
tall at the center, the handle is 5" tall. If you are interested in more
details, please e-mail me direct. P.G. Brinkmann, in sonny San
