What's the Buzz?

Vawn and Mike Gray make humble recycled glass bee-autiful! Filled with purple blooms and sweet bees, their textural nightlights are kiln-formed and fused from broken bottles that were rescued before they reached the landfill. The gentle curve of the glass conceals the light bulb and provides an attractive view from all angles. Produces a warm, ambient glow akin to candlelight. Four watt bulb included. Handmade in Cape Coral, Florida.

Plus, in an effort to revitalize their buzzy subject's population, each nightlight comes with a pack of seeds that produce weedy wild flowers that are simply the bee's knees!



We chatted with Vawn and Mike about where they gain inspiration for their quirky collection of nightlights. (Hint: funny panda YouTube videos made the list.) Read the whole story on our blog.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“We like to treat [the bulb] like the sun and use the light to its best advantage—to enhance and breathe life into the design. It’s always all about the light!”

Unhappy with the processes and materials involved with making glass—Aerosol spray cans, toxic glazes, energy sucking kilns, miles of bubble wrap, and mountains of Styrofoam peanuts—Vawn and Mike Gray developed a process to create kiln-formed, fused, recycled bottle glass pieces. The kiln they use in their Cape Coral, Florida studio is a super energy efficient, computer-controlled fusing oven, turning out the colorful handmade pieces that become functional little works of art for your wall.

        I have one in my bathroom and another in my kitchen, both by the sinks. I turn these on in the morning when I first get up and can't face the big lights. Then again in the evening for a warm, cozy feeling. These lights are great mood enhancers. Love them!

        Bought this for my mom; she is very into environmentally friendly products, and loved that this was made from recycled glass! Also does not hurt that it has beautiful colors, especially when lit, and has the cute little bumble bees on it!

        Very beautiful on and off

        Comments about UncommonGoods Recycled Glass Bumblebee Nightlight:

        My mom calls my two boys her "bumble bees" so when I stumbled across this item I thought it was absolutely perfect...and it was! It was beautiful straight from the box but plugging it in and turning it on really showed off how stunning this piece really is. Thank you so very much for helping me make this Mother's Day special for my mom.

              I orders 5 of the night lights. Two of the bumble bee. One was for me. Good thing I looked before gifting. One of the corners had broken off. I kept the broken one of course.
