Produces the same warm ambient glow of candle light. Four watt bulb included. Handmade in Cape Coral, Florida.



Due to the handmade and recycled nature of these items, each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly.

“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.

      I order two turtle nightlights, one was perfect, the other had too many black stones on top of it. I returned the second one.

          Comments about Recycled Glass Turtle Night Light:

          I was looking for a nightlight in our bathroom that has a turtle on it. a few months ago I found one in a catalog from a very well known store but I was not satisfied with the location of the on/off switch. (too close to the decoration part, thus very difficult to switch) I sent it back with the reason clearly stated. The new item arrived in a few weeks but still the same problem. When I found your product in your web site, I was very happy. When the actual merchandise arrived, I was doubly excited because the quality I was looking for was there!
          It is so exciting when I can purchase something that is made in USA that is very well made!!!

              I love the idea that this item is made from recycled glass that was going to be thrown away. It is beautiful, and would add to any room. I bought two, one for me, and one for a gift to someone who does work with the endangered turtles in our area.

              To plug into our socket,it has to hang upside down. The plugin part could rotate and that would help.
