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!

Vawn and Mike Gray

For 20 years, Vawn and Mike Gray created and sold original lines of fine arts and crafts. But they were always haunted by the environmentally wrong processes and materials that were involved with it?Aerosol spray cans, toxic glazes, energy sucking kilns, miles of bubble wrap and mountains of Styrofoam peanuts.

In the Summer of 2007, while watching a world wide broadcast of the "Live Earth" concert, they were inspired to change their ways. On that weekend they launched Reborn Glass: Artful reminders To Conserve. Through diligent trial and error they developed a process to create kiln-formed fused recycled bottle glass pieces. The kiln they use is a super energy efficient, computer-controlled fusing oven, not at all like the energy-sucking kilns of the past. The relationship between the glass colors and our natural resources sparked even more inspiration for their projects. collection

Very sad I had to return this item. The plug did not swivel & of course, all of my outlets go horizontal. These lites only work with vertical outlets.

      We know have three of these. I actually don't see a point in ever getting any other nightlight - what could be cuter? It makes me happy just to look at it.

                  We keep a nightlight on in the kitchen, day and night. After about 10 years, the one we were using died. I'd been waiting for the nightlight to die so I'd have a reason to buy one of these. And then they came out with this design! It is gorgeous! Something I love about this nightlight is that it has an on/off switch. I don't like the kind that come on automatically with a sensor. They aren't reliable.

                      This nightlight is beautiful both when it's on and when it is off. The glass shade part is 5 stars. The plastic hardware that connects to the electrical plug in part needs to be higher quality. Also, on mine, it was glued on crooked. Not bad enough that I will send it back, but seriously - it takes a second to glue that piece on and they should have been more careful. But this is truly a beautiful night light and I think it is worth the price.

                        Purchased this for my sister for Christmas. She collects bee's. I think this will look perfect in her bathroom. I love the crackeled look of the glass. I just wish it was a little less expensive, becasue I would have purchased the blue flower one for myself.

                        We love these nightlights and purchased a couple for our guest bathrooms. They look great when they are lit and this one with the bees came with wild flower seeds as an added surprise!
                        The only problem is that we have an older home and outlets are not always upright. I had to plug this into an outlet that is horizontal and now it's hard to tell they are bees. Ideally, the plug would be adjustable.
