Tree of Light & Life

Featuring a sheltering tree of life motif, this recycled glass nightlight serves as a constant reminder of the enduring power of motherhood and firm family roots. When lit, its organic glass mosaic fills the room with an ambient glow of colored light that's bright enough to provide security, but soft enough to sleep through. The colorful, textured glass composition is made from 100% recycled bottles, handmade by Vawn and Mike Gray 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.

“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.

    They are lovely but I miss the angelfish design. I only have one I bought a while back and wish they would bring that one back.

              I purchased two of these to place in gift bags for a speaker and worship leader at a women's faith based retreat. Our "logo" is a tree above and below ground. The motto is "Thrive". The cost is more than I intended to spend. However, these night lights are perfect!

                My son really did like this product. Unique and Beautiful. When he sent me a pic, it did have one area in the right corner where you could see the plate you place it one with no glass overlaying that area. He didn't notice though :) It was still very beautiful and looked like the picture found on Uncommon Goods

                    I ordered the Tree of Life night light for my step mother. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and is only in her early 40's. I wanted to remind her that there is still so much life left in her, and every time she looks at this light, it would tell her to keep on fighting. Although the light was in pieces when she opened the package, Uncommongoods completely took care of her gift right away. Amazing and expeditious customer service!

                    Comments about UncommonGoods Recycled Glass Tree of Life Nightlight:

                    The ONLY thing I did not like about the product was the Artist Story card. ....'we rescue post consumer liquor bottles'. I am so much for the challenge of recycling glass. However, I do not think the mention of liquor bottles is necessary. It may bring to light (no pun intended) emotions or feelings to those who have been affected by alcohol, and they may not appreciate the product for the intent and energy of the theme of the nightlight. I think simply recycled glass is all that should be included in the story.
                    Thank you
