Here Comes The Sun

Enjoy the quiet magic of the forest at dawn with this ethereal nightlight, showcasing the sun peering through a row of tall trees.

Captivated by the interplay between light and clay, artist Marty Kubicki creates three-dimensional carvings in porcelain that come to life when lit. Using the same techniques used in the 1800s to make lithopanes, Marty and his team of artisans craft wax carvings and etched porcelain panels to hand make detailed works of art. Handmade in California.

Made in California

Some neighbors offer a cup of sugar. For Marty Kubicki, it was a new passion. When the Chicago native moved to California, it was into a home across the street from ceramics artists, who soon coaxed him into leaving his electronics career to join their budding ceramic jewelry business. He started learning about clay and became hooked by this fascinating, flexible medium. Eventually, he started designing his own decorative accessories and experimenting with different types of clay and forms. When a collector showed him an antique lithophane, Marty was amazed by the intricate detail these delicate carvings produced when lit from behind. He was also amazed that such a beautiful art form had disappeared, and so he now dedicates himself to creating these extraordinary works.

We purchased this as a gift for a new home owner, and they loved it. The soft illumination is very pretty in their great bath room. Gorgeous trees in early sunlight.

Nice idea but this was defective

1

The panel could not be made to hang straight. It is an interesting idea, but this one was not right. In addition, the night light itself appears to be the cheapest possible unit to buy. The light shield seemed too large and substantial for this flimsy base. Perhaps this is the reason for the problem? Or else, just bad luck.

This is a perfect night light for our master bedroom. The illumination on this screen is absolutely stunning. I'd never heard of the process before and it's awesome. The light is bright enough to light up a large room, but not bright enough to distract or keep a person awake. (I began using night lights with an elderly cat and just continued.) It's priced well and low enough that it would be perfect for gift-giving. This was a lovely gift that I gave myself.

Lovely Nightlight

I wanted an attractive nightlight for the hallway upstairs. This is gorgeous when illuminated. A bit fragile but I wanted form over function, although it works great and emits a lot of light.
