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.

This is well detailed with the green glass textured "trees". It is bright and the elephants are clearly defined. It is very unique and looks so adorable in my granddaughter's room. It is wonderfully symbolic of a mother and baby's relationship. It is also a decent size. Very satisfied. Great gift.

The product is very original and creative. It definitely looks like it is handmade, and it is a sweet design. I would love to say that I'm nuts about it, but I honestly was just a little disappointed in the craftmanship for the price. I'm sure that my mom will enjoy it, but I had hoped it would be just a little more attractive.

              This is my second nightlight purchase. I am equally happy the second time around. I have purchased the nightlights for my kids rooms. They get a lot of compliments on them from their friends. They are both highly functional and a beautiul decoration.

                It's great to have a nightlight with a wonderful design and of recycled material. I look forward to getting one (or more) of the other designs from these artists.

                Bought it for a baby shower gift. Loved the elephant design.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Arrived on time but broke into before I could give it as a gift.... after calling customer service I was immediately sent another one! They didn't even require sending the original one back. Thought this was outstanding service!
