Inspired by the wondrous, moonlit journey of the baby sea turtle from its nest to the sea, this beautifully handmade night light rescues recycled glass bottles and turns them into artful home accents.Kiln formed and fused from recycled glass bottles salvaged before reaching the landfill. Produces the same warm ambient glow of candle light. Four watt bulb included. Handmade in Cape Coral, Florida.

Due to the handmade and recycled nature of these items, each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly.

“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.

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.
