The soft glow of this painterly nightlight illuminates a sweet scene of a baby elephant tagging along with its parent for protection against the backdrop of night. When aglow, the luminescent glass mosaic fills a room with ambient colored light that is bright enough to illuminate obstacles, but soft enough to sleep through. The colorful, textured glass is made from 100% post-consumer bottle glass, kiln formed by artisans Vawn and Mike Gray. 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.

It was a little smaller than I expected from the images, but my mom thinks it's the perfect size and says she really loves it. I also enjoyed showing her the video on the website of how it was made.

I pride myself on finding unique and special gifts for family and friends, and Uncommon Goods is one of my 'go to' places. This line of nightlights not only are a wonderful use of recycled glass, but a one-of-a-kind gift that recipients are always delighted with. I enjoy shopping on the site, as much as I enjoy purchasing gifts and sharing with others. I applaud the encouragement UC puts forth for new inventors and creative thinkers.
