Here Comes The Sun

Enjoy the quiet magic of the forest at dawn with this ethereal nightlight, showcasing the sun peering through a row of tall trees.

Captivated by the interplay between light and clay, artist Marty Kubicki creates three-dimensional carvings in porcelain that come to life when lit. Using the same techniques used in the 1800s to make lithopanes, Marty and his team of artisans craft wax carvings and etched porcelain panels to hand make detailed works of art. Handmade in California.

Made in California

Some neighbors offer a cup of sugar. For Marty Kubicki, it was a new passion. When the Chicago native moved to California, it was into a home across the street from ceramics artists, who soon coaxed him into leaving his electronics career to join their budding ceramic jewelry business. He started learning about clay and became hooked by this fascinating, flexible medium. Eventually, he started designing his own decorative accessories and experimenting with different types of clay and forms. When a collector showed him an antique lithophane, Marty was amazed by the intricate detail these delicate carvings produced when lit from behind. He was also amazed that such a beautiful art form had disappeared, and so he now dedicates himself to creating these extraordinary works.

Comments about UncommonGoods Woodland Sunbeams Lithopane Nightlight:

I wanted an attractive nightlight for the hallway upstairs. This is gorgeous when illuminated. A bit fragile but I wanted form over function, although it works great and emits a lot of light.

          I put this in a bathroom where it wouldn't get bumped in the night and broken. It is really lovely.

                  Comments about UncommonGoods Woodland Sunbeams Lithopane Nightlight:

                  While this nightlight is unique and beautiful it is extremely fragile. The lithopone plate does not come attached to the base. The plate gets inserted into a narrow metal strip on the nightlight base. Two small plastic screws are then tightened against the plate. When assembled it felt top heavy and I was concerned that the plastic screws and small base did not provide enough support for the large plate. I received my lithopone nightlight as a gift and only had it for one week before it shattered when accidentally dropped. I was so upset. If you are looking for a unique nightlight I'd suggest purchasing one with a sturdy one piece design.

                  Delicate and beautiful. . Provides a gentle light to guide you through the night. Only "con" (and it really isn't) is that it is too delicate to be placed in a floor outlet if you have small children or pets. It's too pretty to be on the floor anyway!

                    O.K. I'll admit it. I bought this as a gift for my sister so that I could have some subtle light in her guest bedroom during the night. The degree of light that it provided was just right.
