The shape of the Luara lantern is attractively plain and simple. Its proportions are captivatingly well-balanced. The glass cylinder of Luara is made from mouth-blown glass and shows intentional traces of handcrafting, such as small air bubbles and streaks. The metal body is made of iron, which is powder-coated to protect it from corrosion. This does not mean that Luara should be constantly be exposed to the elements, as rust will begin to show. It is therefore advisable to simply carry Luara by its wide handle inside with you after a nice summer evening.
