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.

    It will be used in a powder room bathroom. It gives off enough light you don't really need the primary lighting on.
