This handcrafted "lithophane"; a thin translucent porcelain night light, is made using a lost art from the 1800's. When lit from behind, the light shining through the different thicknesses of the carving causes a highly detailed image to appear in front, almost magically. Applying a ceramic glaze to the back of the porcelain, and then kiln firing it to fuse the color to the porcelain. When lit, the color gentley diffuses through the porcelain, further enhancing its beauty. This peaceful scene of a lighthouse is comforting and soothing.This is their first orignal lithophane design, from over 30 years ago. The whimsical man in the moon is a lighthearted image with broad appeal, and it makes a perfect baby gift. Dimensions: 5.5" H. x 3.5" W x 2.25" D. 120V 7W incandescent bulb.
