My Deer

Like a glittering ice sculpture, Vawn and Mike Gray's crystalline forest scene features a curious fawn peeking out from behind a lush pine tree. What appear to be shimmering bits of ice are actually pools of lustrous glass from bottles diverted from the waste stream to create functional works of art. The artists transform the colorful glass shards by arranging and melting the molten glass pieces into stunning mosaics that depict familiar sights from the land, sea and sky. In this nightlight, a wintry woodland scene adds a charmingly rustic touch in any space, and after dark it illuminates rooms with soft, ambient light. Handmade in Cape Coral, Florida.

We chatted with Vawn and Mike about where they gain inspiration for their quirky collection of nightlights. (Hint: funny panda YouTube videos made the list.) Read the whole story on our blog.

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

“We like to treat [the bulb] like the sun and use the light to its best advantage—to enhance and breathe life into the design. It’s always all about the light!”

Unhappy with the processes and materials involved with making glass—Aerosol spray cans, toxic glazes, energy sucking kilns, miles of bubble wrap, and mountains of Styrofoam peanuts—Vawn and Mike Gray developed a process to create kiln-formed, fused, recycled bottle glass pieces. The kiln they use in their Cape Coral, Florida studio is a super energy efficient, computer-controlled fusing oven, turning out the colorful handmade pieces that become functional little works of art for your wall.

Colored chunks of glass and thick glass backing gives just the right amount of illumination without distorting scene. Using for guest room. Appears sturdy and well made. Was packed with lots of cushioning and arrived undamaged.

            I ordered a Pelican years ago and was very impressed with the quality and beauty of this nightlight. They are very attractive, even if you don't turn them on. And when you do turn them on, the light is just right - not too bright but bright enough. I plan on ordering more of them.
