Handmade porcelain Lithophane night lights
These night lights are handmade in USA using techniques from a lost art of the 1800' called "Lithophanes". Light shining through the varied thicknesses of thin porcelain causes a beautiful image to appear in the lit porcelain. To create this amazing artwork, they first need to carve the image in wax while iluminated from behind. Then, they take a plaster mold of that carving, and cast a fine porcelain in this mold, faithfully reproducing every detail. Lastly they kiln fire it to 2300F for 12 hours, thus giving the porcelain its translucency.
- Includes 1 standard 7 watt candelabra base bulb.
