It's A Shore Thing

Bring light to the devastating effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill with this fundraising night light. Husband and wife team Vawn and Mike Gray designed this token as an artistic call to action in partnership with UncommonGoods. $3.80 from each Sandpiper night light and Pelican night light benefit Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research.

Fused from post-consumer glass bottles rescued before reaching the landfill, each handmade night light is kiln formed in Florida.

Fueled by a tireless team of on-call biologists, veterinarians, chemists and volunteers, Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research has been rehabilitating injured, orphaned and oiled wildlife since 1976.

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.
