  • the story

Star bird

When the sun sets below the horizon, light the way through the sea of darkness with this pelican night light. Handmade from fused, recycled glass, this night light was designed by husband and wife team Vawn and Mike Gray as a reaction to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill and its devastating effects on wildlife in the Gulf region. Emitting a soft glow, this night light will keep you from fishing around in the dark. Made in 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

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 PELICAN NIGHT LIGHT:

        I bought several of these for my home and quickly placed a second order for more. I cannot express how much I love each design I purchased. (I have purchaed the egret,the pelican, the seahorse, and the sunflower.) I gave one as a gift for a friend and she loves her's as much as I love all of mine. I keep putting some aside for gifts, but end up keeping them and not giving them away. :)

        As a fellow Floridian, I am hoping the artists will provide new designs of maybe palm trees and seagulls. The egret was a favorite...I would love to see that one come back again.

                  Had this sent directly to my sister in Oregon as a gift. She said "Love it! ... What a great surprise. It came in a really big box and I had to unwrap a bunch of stuff to get to it. It was really fun. Now my favorite night lite ever!"

                  I myself haven't seen it yet.... but one day I will!

                    This is our Powder room Pelican for our beach home! He is adorable and provides great lighting in the room. I leave him on all day because he's so pretty to look at.
                    This is the cutest nightlight I've ever seen.
                    I have him swiveled in the outlet so you can see him better
                    Also, it's made from recycled glass by American artisans and that's a win win in my book.
