  • the story

Fluorescent Fleece

Rather than follow the herd, Vawn and Mike Gray take an artistic approach to recycling, using crushed glass to create impressionist artworks. This sweet, dimensional sheep is kiln-formed and fused from recycled glass 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.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

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

    This was perfect for a 3rd anniversary gift (glass) for my husband who collects sheep items. It puts off just the right amount of light for a night light in our bathroom. He loved it!

        Comments about RECYCLED GLASS SHEEP NIGHT LIGHT:

        I purchased the night light because I was tired of sleeping with a lamp on. It provides enough light to keep the monsters away, but is dim enough to let me get a good nights sleep. The lamb is really cute, and I love that it's hand crafted and that each one is slightly different. Great night light for kids...adults, too.

            I have the owl night light for my baby's nursery and now purchased the sheep for my friend's baby. We love our owl night light and it's the perfect amount of light in a small room for feeding and even changing my little one in the middle of the night. It's sweet, cute and practical. we did have to change the outlet to match the light for installation.

                  I bought this for my cousin. I thought it would be nice for her to have since she is afraid of the dark. She loved the gift; however, the way her outlet is setup and the way the plug was designed, the sheep is upside down... I haven't had the chance to take a look at it, but we may need to invest in a surge protector and some nails to mount the surge protector in a way so that the sheep will be right side up.

                    Great for night lighting the front hall and with class! We're sheep people, no getting around it, and this is a great addition. I'd seen this in the catalog many times and always resisted, but so glad I went for it!
