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

Comments about Recycled Glass Night Owl Nightlight:

The recycled glass nightlights made by American artists might be a little pricey, but I'll order more - the quality is there and they not only dress up my home, they make great gifts. They're attractive, offer multiple designs (so there's one to fit everyone on the gift list), they're unique (I've been collecting lights and night lights for a long time and have never found anything quite like them), and they're well made. I wish I could offer up a constructive criticism, but I don't see any room for improvement! Keep creating "nature inspired" lights?

            The owl arrived on time in great packaging. It's intended for a future gift, so I can't attest to the construction or the longevity of the product. But it is darling and I'm having trouble deciding which child to give it to. I may have to get the giraffe, too! The design is perfect, it's still visible with the night light and looks like a picture in the daytime. I love Uncommon Goods for the handmade, often made-in-U.S.A., not-mass- reproduced elements. I've purchased several items - even one for myself.

              The first time this night light arrived the glass was broken at the edge. I sent it back, received a replacement with no problems. It is not only cute but serves well as a light in our hall bathroom.
