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. To top it off, they would load it all into a one-ton, gas-guzzling truck and travel across the state and the country to different exhibits.
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.
Quickly into the process, they realized that bottles only come in brown (earth), green (trees), blue (water) and clear (air). The relationship between those colors and our natural resources sparked even more inspiration for their projects.
"The challenge to make something of both beautiful form and useful function from bottles otherwise destined for the landfill is truly rewarding," says Vawn. collection
