Pool of Light

You don't have to sleep on a bed of coral to enjoy the charm of this seahorse nightlight. The cute little seahorse seems to gaze with wide-eyed wonder at the cool green light around him. The colorful, textured glass is made from 100% post-consumer bottle glass, kiln formed by artisans Vawn and Mike Gray. Handmade in Cape Coral, Florida.

“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.

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.

    The craftsmanship of the glass is beautiful. I definitely think the investment is great.

    Service and delivery comments:

    This product was so protected when it arrived! The box holding the night light was totally secure with shredded magazines which ensured it was tightly fit into the small box. The shipping box was filled with giant bubble wrap! It was so snug. I had no fear that things were safe. It made me comforted to see it so protected.

          Very cute indeed! only thing I would rather they used a light sensor rather than just on/off switch. Going to look for one that it will fit onto, but still very cute!

          Comments about RECYCLED GLASS SEAHORSE NIGHT LIGHT:

          This nightlight is adorable and I smile every time I see it. You could say it lights up my day (and night) in more than one way! It is extremely well made. I'm waiting for the right opportunity to purchase either this design or another made by this artist for a gift. The only improvement I can think of would be for the base to have a light sensor rather than a switch. I put ours on a light sensor base and have been truly delighted to not have to worry about having to switch it on and off. I strongly recommend this nightlight!!

              Just love these recycled glass night lights! Picked this one, seahorse, for a good friend who lives at the beach. Can't wait for her to see it for her birthday!

                  I have admired these night lights for several years, but this was my first purchase of one. I ordered the seahorse as a Christmas gift for some friends who live in Florida. Their guest room bath has a seahorse theme, so this was a perfect addition. Their response was that it is beautiful! Next I'll have to get one for my own house.

                      Not your average night light. Was looking for something to add a little fun and this did just the trick. Love the idea of the recycle components. Beautifully done and worth the price for a unique night light.
