Follow the Moon

Inspired by the wondrous, moonlit journey of the baby sea turtle from its nest to the sea, this beautifully handmade night light rescues recycled glass bottles and turns them into artful home accents.Kiln formed and fused from recycled glass bottles salvaged before reaching the landfill. 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.

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 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.
