Bedtime on the Serengeti

The soft glow of this painterly nightlight illuminates a sweet scene of a baby giraffe tagging along with its parent for protection. When lit, the luminous glass mosaic fills a room with ambient colored light that's bright enough for safety, but soft enough to sleep through. The colorful, textured glass is made from 100% post-consumer bottles, 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.

            I purchased the giraffe light and the elephant light for my children to see their way to the bathroom in the night. They are lovely and provide a nice amount of light. I am very pleased.

                I saw this nightlight and thought it was adorable. It's even prettier in person. It lights up beautifully and makes me want to order a bunch of them.

                  I have purchased the tree of life, the elephants and when I saw the giraffes I had to have them. All have been quality product and look stunning. They are great accent lights. I have ordered 3 of the giraffes and given two away to friends due to the birth of April's baby boy.
                  Thank you so much for such lovely lights...I smile every time I look at one of them.
