Man in the Moon - Lithophane Night Light
This is a lithophane, a thin translucent porcelain night light, made using a lost art from the 1800's. The porcelain panel is gently curved, which allows it to wrap around the bulb so that the bulb is not as visible from the side.
When lit from behind, the light shining through the carving causes a highly detailed image to appear in front, almost magically. The illuminated image is so detailed that it has a totally photographic quality.
Mounted on a durable night light socket with an on-off rocker switch, this night light safely and effectively lights up bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, or hallways at night. The soothing warm light it emits creates a peaceful and ethereal ambiance that is truly magical!
This beautiful night light measures approximately 5.5" high x 3.5" wide, x 2.25" deep. Comes complete with a 120V 7W incandescent bulb, and is nicely boxed.

About Marty Kubicki
Having always been fascinated by the translucency of this remarkable but challenging material, Marty first started working in porcelain in 1981. Two years later, he was shown his first antique lithophane by a collector. He dedicated himself to discovering the secrets of creating lithophanes.
Initially, Marty reproduced antique lithophanes that he had collected. Eventually, he learned how to carve his own original designs. Now, Marty and his talented team have developed their skills to the point that they are making some of the most detailed lithophanes ever made. They've branched out from the original Victorian Era images, and now creating images in a broad range of genres, including animals, nature, and more.
