Tree of Light & Life

Featuring a sheltering tree of life motif, this recycled glass nightlight serves as a constant reminder of the enduring power of motherhood and firm family roots. When lit, its organic glass mosaic fills the room with an ambient glow of colored light that's bright enough to provide security, but soft enough to sleep through. The colorful, textured glass composition is made from 100% recycled bottles, handmade by Vawn and Mike Gray 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.

“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.

My son really did like this product. Unique and Beautiful. When he sent me a pic, it did have one area in the right corner where you could see the plate you place it one with no glass overlaying that area. He didn't notice though :) It was still very beautiful and looked like the picture found on Uncommon Goods

The first light arrived broken. Uncommon goods promptly sent another to arrive in two days which was greatly appreciated. My disappointment was that the 2nd light had a scratch in the paint and the tree trunk looks like a woman's body (maybe its supposed to). I ended up keeping it rather than give it as a gift.

    I used the nightlight in my half-bath and it looks beautiful! I love the "Tree of Life" theme and have had my eye on this night light for some time - not disappointed! The craftsmanship is awesome and considering buying another for my kitchen.

                      This was a birthday gift for my bestie. She thought it was beautiful and loves the soft glow it leaves in the room. Just enough light to see your way around things and doesn"t bother someone if they are trying to sleep.
