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.

“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.

        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.
