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.

Nice idea but this was defective

      Comments about UncommonGoods Woodland Sunbeams Lithopane Nightlight:

      The panel could not be made to hang straight. It is an interesting idea, but this one was not right. In addition, the night light itself appears to be the cheapest possible unit to buy. The light shield seemed too large and substantial for this flimsy base. Perhaps this is the reason for the problem? Or else, just bad luck.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Fortunately, Uncommongoods could not have been better about a refund. This is an excellent organization and I will definitely use them again, nightlight notwithstanding.

        This is a perfect night light for our master bedroom. The illumination on this screen is absolutely stunning. I'd never heard of the process before and it's awesome. The light is bright enough to light up a large room, but not bright enough to distract or keep a person awake. (I began using night lights with an elderly cat and just continued.)

        It's priced well and low enough that it would be perfect for gift-giving. This was a lovely gift that I gave myself.

        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.

                        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!
