Hit the Spots

Vawn and Mike Gray bring humble recycled glass to new heights with this googly-eyed giraffe made from colorful bits of recycled glass. This long-necked fellow is 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.

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.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Recycled Glass Giraffe Nightlight:

    I love this light! I use it in my toddler son's room. He love turning it on each night before bed, and says "hi" to the giraffe. It has an LED light, and it's actually not overwhelmingly bright. It gives off the perfect amount of light, with a soft glow in the room.

      Purchased as a gift for my infant grandson's safari-themed nursery. I knew the comically charming face of the giraffe would bring a smile even during those middle-of-the-night visits from parents. Beautifully crafted. Absolutely adorable. So, my 5-year-old grandson now has it in his room!
