Illuminated Landscape

The northern lights they saw that winter danced in their dreams. This nightlight is a miniature, illuminated landscape beneath rippling waves of hand-colored aurora. The original design is carved in wax, then cast in a porcelain panel, yielding depth that adds realistic dimension to the scene. Delicate washes of color are applied to the reverse side and fused with the translucent porcelain, enlivening the scene with an amazing rendition of dusk over a quiet northern forest. Handmade by Marty Kubicki in California; plug assembly made in China.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

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.

        I plugged this real work of art into a plug in a rock wall backsplash, and the effect is mesmerizing. It appears to be a mini portrait of the northern lights over a tree-topped mountain side. Lovely

          I got this for my mom for Christmas. She likes kinda woodsy things and wanted a nightlight for the hallway. I found this and was so excited -- it has that woodsy feel but it's also really classy and unique. My mom loved it and it does great to cast a little light in the hallway on nighttime treks.
