The Beach Turtle night light* captures one of our favorite summertime coastal treats - the hatching of sea turtles. This small piece of art provides delight in unexpected places in your home, day or night, while also making a wonderful gift for someone special to receive.
The Beach Turtle design reflects the mighty struggle of the tiny turtle as it crosses the beach sand to reach the blue-green salty water. I strive to portray excitement through my glasswork, fusing different color combinations and forms. The artistic process involves multiple firings in a high-temperature kiln to shape and add texture, after carefully selecting colors and cutting the glass. The adorable glass sea turtle is a three-dimensional sculpture that adds a unique and fun presence to the piece. Beach Turtle is a combination of color, light, and a special coastal experience, to be enjoyed as a small canvas in the day and as a lighted functional piece of art at night.
I fire the glass until curved as an extra step in my process. The bulb is then hidden when viewed from the side. As an added touch, your night light is signed by the artist to complete the piece.
UL listed white toggle switch base and 4-watt light bulb are included.
Size: 4.5 inches x 3.75 inches x 2 inches
* Please allow for slight variances in arrangement and design due to each piece being individually made and the handcrafted nature of fused glass.
