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. collection

      Comments about RECYCLED SANDPIPER NIGHT LIGHT:

      I need nightlights to see at night because of my poor eyesight, but I also like them to be attractive because they are all over my house. This one I put in my living room, and everyone who has seen it had admired it and asked where I got it.

          I use it in the bathroom for just enough light which also has a seashore theme so this fits in perfectly.

          Delivery was super fast as well.

            I got this as a birthday gift for my mom. We are re-doing our kitchen and dining room; the theme being "beachy". The specific theme of the dining room oddly enough is the sandpiper bird and the nightlight is a perfect final touch! It is very well made and adds a bit of art to any room!

                This is a great nightlite, as it is not too bright, just a nice diffused light.

                  This is lovely in our bathroom and I enjoy seeing it during the evening and early morning. The glass really glows nicely with the various colors.

                    I replaced a very run-of-the-mill nightlight in my bathroom with this cute piece. It immediately changed the feel of the whole room. It was the missing piece to complete the look I was after. And I can feel good about it because of how it was made.
