Cardinals Colored Night Light

      • This is a "lithophane"; a thin translucent porcelain night light, 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. As you see, the illuminated image is so detailed, that it has a totally photographic quality to it! In addition, the relief of the carving gives the image a 3 dimensional quality when seen in person.   On this piece we take it one step further by 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. Instantly recognizable with their distinctive red plumage; the female's sweet song is one of the first sounds you will hear in the morning. Fiercely territorial and loyal, they are an endearing creature loved by many. This image captures a mated pair on a Birch tree, and is one of our top sellers.
